Kelantan PASâ€™ bid to implement hudud in the state could create situations of double jeopardy, said Minister in the Prime Ministerâ€™s Department Nancy Shukri.
â€œIt is not easy for hudud to pass through (Parliament). We have the Federal Constitution and we have to look at the offences under hudud.
â€œThere might be double jeopardy,â€ said the Batang Sadong MP when met by reporters at Parliament lobby, Tuesday.
Nancy, who is also from Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB), said she shared the sentiment of Tourism and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz who called talk on the implementation of hudud in Malaysia â€œsillyâ€.
Nazri had said that the move to enforce hudud in Kelantan was â€œan exercise in futility and any amendment to the Constitution to allow hududâ€™s implementation required a two-thirdâ€™s majority in Parliament.
â€œI am in agreement with Datuk Nazri. It is just not possible. (There are) a lot of provisions already under the Federal Constitution. There needs to be a fresh study if we were to allow hudud to pass through.
â€œIn Sarawak, I donâ€™t think they will get the vote for hudud,â€ she said.
Pokok Sena PAS MP Datuk Mahfuz Omar, however, brushed off Nazriâ€™s remark, saying that it was â€œundemocraticâ€ to label talk on hudud as silly.
â€œWe canâ€™t talk about it, does that mean we canâ€™t dream about it?â€ he said, briefly.-The Star
