P. WAYTHAMOORTHY'S MALAYSIAN INTERNATIONAL PASSPORT REVOKED


It has been reported that self exile HINDRAF leader P. Waythamoorthy's Malaysian International Passport has been revoked by the Malaysian government. This was informed to Wathyamoorthy when he returned to London after meeting officials from the United Nations Human Rights Commission in Geneva recently.

The Malaysian Indian Congress, Pakatan Rakyat and various other parties are seeking the reason behind this cancellation from the Malaysian government.

Waythamoorthy has been actively campaigning to do away with the marginalising of the Indian community in Malaysia and his group had a successful rally on November 25, 2007 to show their grievances but the Malaysian police had used forced to disperse the crowd with a few arrest.
