Opposition lawmakers will march from Parliament to the federal police headquarters in Bukit Aman tomorrow to demand that the police stop the recent “harassment” of parliamentarians.
PKR parliamentary whip Datuk Johari Abdul said that the MPs will deliver a memorandum to Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar with the demand.
“We want a stop to what has happened to the likes of Pagoh (Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin) and Tambun (Datuk Seri Husni Hanadzlah),” Johari said.
Police recently commenced investigations against Husni and Muhyiddin for allegedly violating the Official Secrets Act (OSA) while speaking in Dewan Rakyat.
The investigations have once again raised concerns about the extent of the parliamentary immunity accorded to MPs.
The MPs will march from the Parliament gates beginning 9.30 am before heading to Bukit Aman, where they will be handing over a memorandum signed by opposition MPs.
PKR vice-president Nurul Izzah Anwar was also previously arrested under the Sedition Act over a speech made in Parliament.
Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi previously warned that parliamentary immunity does not provide shield against laws such as OSA.
