Nurul Izzah sues IGP Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar and cabinet minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob over ‘treason’ claim is just like pouring salt onto the wound.

The New Straits Time reported that:
PKR vice-president Nurul Izzah Anwar has sued Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar and cabinet minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob over allegations of treason linked to her meeting with self-styled Sulu princess Jacel Kiram.
Nurul Izzah is seeking general and aggravated damages, an injunction to restrain the defendants from further repeating the allegation, interest, cost, and any other relief deemed fit by the court.
Above is the seditious statement made by Nurul Izzah Anwar in parliament on …..
Using Clause 2 of Article 63 of the Federal Constitution, the opposition leaders claim that Members of Parliament can say whatever they want in the Parliament and starting to create stories so that actions will be taken to the others who are against them.
In fact they even accused the Inspector General of Police for “blatant abuse of power”.
The Malaysian Insider reported Nurul Izzah as saying:
“I think it is quite clear. My arrest is a blatant abuse of power by the IGP, and I hold the prime minister responsible for allowing transgressions against parliamentarians. I have immunity granted to me… on the issues raised in Parliament,” the Lembah Pantai MP said after being released at 12.30pm at the Dang Wangi police headquarters today. – TMI
According to lawyer Dato’ Zulkifli Noordin there is no total immunity for the MPs in parliament because the MPs are also binded by the Article 63 (4) of the Federal Constitution which says:
Clause (2) shall not apply to any person charged with an
offence under the law passed by Parliament under Clause (4) of
Article 10 or with an offence under the Sedition Act 1948 [Act
15] as amended by the Emergency (Essential Powers) Ordinance
No. 45, 1970 [P.U. (A) 282/1970].
Article 3(a) and 3(c) of the Sedition Act says,
A “seditious tendency” is a tendency—
(a) to bring into hatred or contempt or to excite disaffection
against any Ruler or against any Government;
(c) to bring into hatred or contempt or to excite disaffection
against the administration of justice in Malaysia or in
Infact in the case of Datuk Mark Koding -v- Pendakwaraya  2 MLJ 120 FC, Datuk Mark Koding was found guilty under the Sedition Act for his speech in the Parliament.
Total freedom to say anything they want and to accuse anybody they wish no matter if they are lying?
Now it is very clear why the opposition parties want the Sedition Act to be abolished.
I’m very thankful that the government of Malaysia is wise enough to keep the Sedition Act to protect peace and harmony in our country from spiteful people with personal, self-interest agendas.
