Sri Lankan minister warns hotels that only accept 'foreigners' to be prosecuted

Sri Lanka's minister of local government and provincial councils, Faizer Musthapha warned that hotels that only cater for "foreigners" would be prosecuted by the tourism police and local government bodies. 

Highlighting hotels that have boards stating 'Tourist Only' was a violation of the constitution and human rights. 

“This cannot be accepted. We have experienced second hand treatment on us at some times at certain countries as Sri Lankans. It is impossible to keep exclusive areas for tourists alone and bar Sri Lankans which is an affront to our national dignity,” Mr Musthapha was quoted by the Daily Mirror as saying.
