The Committee on Public Finance questioned the Finance Ministry officials regarding the action taken to recover the loss incurred due to the Sugar Tax Scam.

The Committee expressed its displeasure as the Finance Ministry has failed to take action in this regard as yet.

The matter arose at the Committee on Public Finance held in Parliament under the chairmanship of parliamentarian Patali Champika Ranawaka, in the absence of its chair, Hon. (Dr.) Harsha de Silva.

The Committee questioned as to why the Inland Revenue Department, in consultation with the Attorney General, has not yet taken action in this regard.
