PUTRAJAYA: The Government will refer the case of Lembah Pantai MP Nurul Izzah Anwarâ€™s controversial meeting with Sulu princess Jacel H. Kiram Hasan to the Attorney-Generalâ€™s Chambers.
Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi called the meeting â€œunwelcomeâ€ and said there are several kinds of action that could be taken on the PKR vice-president.
â€œOperationally, the police will deal with this case and they will see what sort of action can be taken.
â€œThe Government will also present a paper to the A-Gâ€™s Chambers for a legal viewpoint on this case,â€ said Dr Ahmad Zahid at a press conference here on Friday.
Dr Ahmad Zahid, who is also Home Minister, said Nurul Izzah could also be referred to the Dewan Rakyat if any MP proposes a motion to take action against her.
â€œWhile we celebrate differences of opinions in politics, in matters related to national security, politicians must be sensitive and cannot have different opinions.
â€œEveryone knows that the Jamalul Kiram family was behind the Lahad Datu intrusion. This was not a political case, but rather, a case affecting national security and sovereignty.
â€œIf any of our people were to be seen with these people, it is like an endorsement towards the Kiram family. This government views this meeting as very unwelcome,â€ said Dr Ahmad Zahid.
