The Star Early Edition - - NEWS -

THE NOBEL Peace Lau­re­ates Sum­mit, which was ini­tially due to take place in Cape Town, has been re­lo­cated to Rome, sum­mit or­gan­is­ers said yes­ter­day. “The sum­mit was sus­pended ear­lier in Septem­ber after the South African gov­ern­ment failed to is­sue a visa for His Ho­li­ness the Dalai Lama, who had hoped to at­tend the 14th world peace sum­mit in Cape Town,” sum­mit spokesman Navdip Dhari­wal stated. The Ti­betan spir­i­tual leader, who has failed to se­cure a visa for a third time in five years, has ac­cused South Africa of “bul­ly­ing a sim­ple per­son”. – Sapa
