P.S.M. Charles reinstated as customs head after protests

P.S.M. Charles has been reinstated as the Director General of Customs for a period of three months following strong protests over her removal.

Cabinet has approved a proposal to reinstate Charles to the post.

She was removed from the post by Finance Minister Mangala Samaraweera but this resulted in trade union action being launched by Customs Department employees.

The matter was also raised in Parliament today by the opposition. (Colombo Gazette)
