The chairman of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Tamils said he prayed “for a new dawn for the Tamil people”, with the expected release of a UN report on mass atrocities committed against Tamils by the Sri Lankan armed forces later this year.
In a message marking the Tamil new year, Member of Parliament Lee Scott sent his wishes to the Tamil community, adding that,
“This is a wonderful time of celebration and gives us the opportunity to reflect on the enormous contribution British Tamils have made to the economy and culture of Britain borne of strong commitment to family and social responsibility.
Mr Scott went on to state,
“I also pray for a new dawn for the Tamil people in Sri Lanka and the victims of war crimes and mass atrocities who suffered enormously and continue to endure extreme hardship, with the release of the UNHRC war crimes report."
“I wish you every success and a brighter future, and may I say Inya Tamizh Puthaandu Nalvaazhthukkal,” concluded the parliamentarian.
