Opposition MPs ask speaker to intervene after cops summon Sepanggar MP

Sepanggar MP Azis Jamman has been summoned by the police for investigation following his speech in the Dewan Rakyat earlier this month, where he said there were growing secession calls within Sabah.

The Warisan lawmaker expressed disappointment over the move and is standing his ground.

Parliamentarians have legal immunity to speak freely in the Dewan Rakyat, but this does not apply to cases involving the Sedition Act 1948.
