A day after Vaiko was forced to return back after being detained at Kuala Lumpur airport after being interrogated over his alleged link with LTTE, the MDMK chief says even as he was not treated like criminals, common courtesies were lacking, ANI said. “Wasn’t treated like a criminal but common courtesies were lacking,” he was quoted as saying by the agency.

He had gone there to attend the reception of the daughter of the Deputy Chief Minister of Malaysian state of Penang P Ramasamy .In a statement relased by the party, after Vaiko landed at the  airport, the party chief was informed by officials that he was banned from entering Malaysia since his name was there in “in the list of persons dangerous to Malaysia,” a PTI report quoted the party as saying.

Further, they told him that there were “several cases pending against him in Sri Lanka.” Denying this, the MDMK chief  said was an Indian citizen and also showed them his passport.

“Still, the authorities did not accept it and made Vaiko sit in an enclosure in the immigration office. They took away his passport and told him that he should not step out of that place,” the release said.

Even though  Ramasamy and Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng tried to speak to officials, they did not allow Vaiko to enter the country. Offficials said they  received an order from the Office of Malaysian Deputy Prime Minister, the party added.

Party workers had also protested his detention near Malasian consulate in Chennai.
