Special approval for building on beach

Reported on April 5, 2016 from Wattala , Western  ι Report #99632

I was trying to build my restaurant close to the beach and I was told it's not permitted and no approvals can be given then how do these people do this? https://www.facebook.com/wattalasrilanka/posts/875568852552235
They have a phone number, building number and they building more floors. This hotel owner has influence with the police and municipality and it is very unfair how they get special approvals. People will come there and drink and just near that police have their check point for drink driving but no one catches anyone who has visited the Araliya places. They have to mentioned the visited the Araliya bars and police will let them off. how unfair is it to the rest of us who have hotels. They have loud parties and police don't stop. They only harass our businesses. We have had our businesses longer than this hotel but he has influence with minister and pays bribes for everything. People say he is one of Mervin Silvas old drug runners so connection and money is no problem. Our business will close and he will get bigger. Please investigate and expose this corruption.
