The Malaysian Bar is concerned by the insinuations made by Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim towards Kasthuri Patto in Parliament on 13 July 2020.

Members of Parliament are free to voice out their opinions, disagree and debate on any and all issues, but it must be done with care and respect to all members of the House.

Members of Parliament should refrain from making distasteful remarks during the proceedings, so as not to dilute the sanctity of the august House.

Salim Bashir is president of the Malaysian Bar

MPs who are disrespectful should not be selected to by their party president and voters of that constituency. Pick better person..
