P3020111P. Uthayakumar answered all questions from the floor. Although we had allocated only half an hour, it extended to well up to just over one hour. Unlike last year a lot more questions were asked about Hindraf, the Indian poor, UMNO racism etc.
In his concluding remarks P. Uthayakumar finally said that the diplomats would know how to take it from here bearing in mind that Malaysia is sensitive to International scrutiny.
