Simon Danczuk, MP for Rochdale in the UK, has pledged to urge the Queen to boycott the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting later this year, in protest at the lack of justice for a British man murdered in Sri Lanka in 2011, reports AFP.
The victim, Khuram Sheikh was a Rochdale constituent.
Speaking to reporters in Colombo, Danczuk said:
"This case has attracted a lot of attention in the UK and people are asking why the wheels of justice have ground to a halt. Why have the suspects all been released on bail and no trial date been set?"
"I will press for a boycott of the CHOGM (Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting) in November."
"I will also write to the Queen that it would be inappropriate for her to attend at a time when this case is pending."
