TNA demands: Laws to end poaching by Indian fishermen
TNA Parliamentarian M. A. Sumanthiran on Friday urged the government
to bring necessary laws to prevent Indian fishermen from poaching in Sri
Lankan territorial waters.
Speaking during an adjournment debate on the problems faced by Sri
Lankan fishermen due to Indian fishermen exploiting fishing resources in
Lankan waters, Sumanthiran alleged maritime resources were being
destroyed due to bottom- trawling and other illegal fishing methods used
by the Indians.
