EU Parliament rejects to hold minutes silence for Sharon

BRUSSELS, Jan 13 (KUNA) -- President of the European Parliament, Martin Schulz, Monday rejected a call to hold a minute's silence in the memory of Ariel Sharon, the ex-Israeli Prime Minister who died on Saturday aged 85 after eight years in a coma and was buried today.
"I will not allow the minute's silence. No, there is no minute's silence," he told the full house of the European Parliament in its first session this year in the French city of Strasbourg.
Dutch MEP Laurence Stassen who belongs to the extreme-right Party for Freedom had called for the one minute silence for Sharon.
