KUALA LUMPUR, 22 Oct 2008: Eleven supporters of the Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) caused a stir at Parliament today as they tried to submit a memorandum to the Speaker.
The memorandum calls for the Speaker Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia to intervene to have the government reactivate the passport of their leader, P Waytha Moorthy, who is now in exile in Britain.
The group claimed that Waytha Moorthy’s passport had been revoked, and as such, he could not return to Malaysia to celebrate Deepavali with his family.
Through the intervention of several leaders of the Pakatan Rakyat opposition coalition, they were allowed to enter Parliament at 10am after waiting over an hour outside the main gate.
The group then passed the memorandum to PKR vice president R Sivarasa to be handed over to Pandikar Amin Mulia. They then left. — Bernama
