PUB­LIC IN­TER­EST IS­SUES OUT­WEIGH SUB JU­DICE: RAFIZI

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

GOV­ERN­MENT law­mak­ers have been re­minded of a court rul­ing in May that mat­ters of pub­lic in­ter­est out­weigh sub ju­dice. PKR sec­re­tary­gen­eral Rafizi Ramli said MPs should not use the ex­cuse that is­sues could not be dis­cussed openly as they were al­ready in court. He was com­ment­ing on Deputy Min­is­ter in the Prime Min­is­ter’s Depart­ment Datuk Dr Asyraf Wa­jdi Dusuki’s claim that he could not de­bate with him on Tabung Haji’s per­for­mance as it would af­fect court pro­ceed­ings. “Even if a case is be­ing brought to court un­der the Pe­nal Code, that’s not an ex­cuse not to de­bate or dis­cuss it,” he told a press con­fer­ence at Par­lia­ment lobby.
