Anwar to face disciplinary action

Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz said today that Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim will face disciplinary action in Parliament over his claim that the prime minister’s 1 Malaysia campaign is linked to former Israeli prime minister Ehud Barak’s One Israel campaign.

The Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department said that the government has decided that Anwar will be referred to the Parliamentary Rights and Privileges Committee under Standing Orders 18 (2).

“After we have analyzed, I heard his explanation in Parliament and found that he was not able to provide concrete evidence to support his allegation that 1 Malaysia was taken from One Israel. APCO has released a statement denying the allegations made by Datuk Seri Anwar last Tuesday,” he told reporters.

A motion to refer Anwar to the committee will be submitted to the Speaker today and debated in Parliament on Monday.
