Proposal against Sri Lanka rejected in Malaysian Parliament

Jun 22, 2011 11:15:52 AM - itnnews.lk

A proposal tabled in Malaysian Parliament calling for a debate on the alleged war crimes in Sri Lanka has been rejected.

The Deputy Speaker of the Malaysian Parliament Wan Junaidi Tuanku has rejected the debate pointing out that it is futile to hold a debate on the matter as it is an internal issue of Sri Lanka. The proposal had been tabled by Malaysian Parliamentarians Johari Abdul, M. Manogaran and Senator M. Ramakrishnan. Expressing his views against the proposal Malaysian Minister of Home Affairs Hamad Al-Bahar said that he visited the North and East of Sri Lanka and found the Sri Lankan Government to be following a positive policy towards the Tamil people.
