'Packer won't come to Sri Lanka'

There is no truth to media reports that world’s no. one casino businessman, owner of Crown Casino James packer, will come to Sri Lanka with a 457 million dollar hotel project, Rank Holdings owner Ravi Wijeratne told Sri Lanka Mirror.

It was Wijeratne who had previously brought Packer to Sri Lanka with the intention of building a 36-storey hotel at D.R. Wijewardena Mawatha in Colombo.

Packer abandoned the idea after the present government imposed taxes to discourage casinos.
