An MHK is criticising the time it took the Manx Government to bring in legislation to freeze the assets of Colonel Gaddafi.


The UN Security Council passed a resolution on 26th February and the sanctions were introduced in the UK the following day.


In the House of Keys today, Michael MHK David Cannan asked the Chief Minister why the sanctions weren't brought in here until 10th March.


Tony Brown says the Isle of Man introduced the legislation as soon as possible.


In total, ten pieces of legislation freezing Gaddafi's assets have been brought in on the Island.


He wasn't happy with Mr Cannan's questions...[play clip]
