On the incident of the Manesar Plant of Maruti Suzuki

19 July 2012

The Embassy of Japan in India strongly deplores the loss of life including one death and scores of injuries caused by the sabotage perpetrated by a group of workers at the Manesar plant of Maruti Suzuki India on 18 July, and condemns the violence and vandalism.

We strongly hope that the State of Haryana would administer, according to law, prompt and just punishment to the perpetrators and effectively enforce law and order so that such incidence would not be repeated in the future.

We expect that the Manesar plant will resume its operations and normalcy will be recovered at the earliest.
