Kiwi proposal to revive LTTE thwarted
At a glance the motion looked like a very progressive one asking for
a ceasefire in Sri Lanka but the Maori Party Member of New Zealand , who
represent the native people of New Zealand , Te Ururoa Flavell knew
better. Using his powers as a MP he blocked the motion, because the
resolution simply wanted to revive the world most cruel terrorist group,
the LTTE and pull it out of the grave.
Maoris are the proud natives of New Zealand, who inhabited the
Pacific island before the white man invaded . But Progressive leader Jim
Anderton is upset a Maori Party MP blocked a parliamentary motion
expressing concern about the humanitarian situation in northern Sri
Lanka, a New Zealand website said. Anderton said his motion was not
about taking sides in a bitter conflict that the United Nations
estimates has resulted in 200,000 civilians fleeing their homes, 4500
deaths and 12,000 people wounded since January.
