Fisheries Minister Mahinda Amaraweera says that laws will be formulated in such a way that Tamil Nadu politicians owning fishing boats that violate Sri Lanka’s sea limits could be summoned to Sri Lanka and punished.

The Minister said so in response to a query JVP MP Nihal Galappatti raised at question time at adjournment of parliament yesterday.

The Minister said further in parliament yesterday that relevant laws would be included in the amendments scheduled to be brought in to the fisheries ordinance today.
