    Foreign media are reporting not only a heated argument but an assault on Dr Nonis. The government should take action against such news that destroy the good name of the country.

    In UK however every one knows that the thug Sajin Vaz has assaulted Dr. Nonis. This thug was working for Trico in Dubai as a baggage handler. When MR was in Dubai before he was elected President this thug was driving him around Dubai showing a good time and MR said to him come and work for him. This thug has no qualification at all not even GCE o/l
