(吉隆坡2日訊)國會禁談一馬發展公司(1MDB)醜聞的封口令,正式解除。這意味著,1MDB課題,不再是國會禁止討論的課題!

國會下議院議長拿督莫哈末阿里夫宣布,國會正式解除前議長丹斯里班迪卡於兩年前,針對國會下議院禁1MDB案所發出的封口令,這意味著,國會議員可以辯論一馬公司相關課題,但不包括前首相拿督斯里納吉之前被控的SRC國際公司案件。接下來的國會議會裡,國會議員在參與辯論時,終於可以暢談1MDB案。

班迪卡曾於2016年10月,禁止部長在國會回答議員們提出有關1MDB的提問。當時,班迪卡是以不願部長就1MDB課題的回答,成為美國訴訟中的呈堂證據,而發出這項封口令。

拿督莫哈末阿里夫指出,由於納吉代表律師已向法庭申請有關案件的封口令,法庭也批准,因此,媒體及其他人受禁止評論有關SRC案。他指出,經過檢視,SRC案是屬於法庭刑事案,所以根據封口令,國會議員不能在議會廳內討論、辯論及提及有關課題。

納吉是於今年7月4日,被控3條刑事失信罪,以及1條貪污罪,這4條控狀都是和SRC國際公司匯款案有關。

拿督莫哈末阿里夫強調,此舉是為了尊重司法權和立法權的分立。

他今日在國會下議院,針對巫統瓜拉古樓國會議員依斯邁較早前要求國會下議院解釋,前議長丹斯里班迪卡之前禁止國會談論一馬公司課題及26億令吉的決定,在這一屆國會是否還有奏效時,作出這項宣布。

阿里夫解除兩年禁令 國會允辯論一馬課題

在美國司法部針對一馬公司入稟民事訴訟之際,前國會下議院議長丹斯里班迪卡以避免干預司法為由,允許前朝部長無需回答一馬案的提問。但是,議長拿督莫哈末阿里,今天解除了這個長達兩年的禁令,允准議員辯論一馬課題,唯一的限制是,不能夠討論前首相拿督斯里納吉面對的失信和貪污案。 國會下議院議長拿督莫哈末阿里夫:「(美國)法院在民事訴訟的非正審程序,基於有關申請沒有理據,已經決定駁回有關申請,有鑒於此,有關指示不再適用於議會廳。」 國會下議院議長拿督莫哈末阿里夫:「經過斟酌,我決定,這在美國司法部針對一馬公司入稟民事訴訟之際,前國會下議院議長丹斯里班迪卡以避免干預司法為由,允許前朝部長無需回答一馬案的提問。但是,議長拿督莫哈末阿里,今天解除了這個長達兩年的禁令,允准議員辯論一馬課題,唯一的限制是,不能夠討論前首相拿督斯里納吉面對的失信和貪污案。

Interim gag order over DoJ's 1MDB civil action lifted in Dewan Rakyat

KUALA LUMPUR: The interim gag order on issues linked to the US Department of Justice's (DoJ) civil action on 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) by former Dewan Rakyat Speaker Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia has been lifted.

Dewan Rakyat Speaker Datuk Mohamad Ariff Md Yusof made this ruling after scrutinising several international Parliamentary practices.

However, Mohamad Ariff did not lift the interim gag order by the High Court against discussing the merits of the criminal 1MDB case against former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, which was filed by the Pekan MP's defence lawyers.

"The interim gag order by YB Pekan's lawyer, where the (merits) of the cases cannot be brought up in the Dewan Rakyat as it is a criminal case. As such it should be respected," said Mohamad Ariff on Thursday (August 2).

This means that lawmakers are still unable to bring up issues related to the criminal charges surrounding 1MDB.

Mohamad Ariff said that the ruling was made to respect the High Court's decision, in a bid to uphold the separation of powers.

However, he also noted that the principle of subjudice should not curtail the freedom and rights of lawmakers to raise matters that are not related to the criminal charges surrounding the case.

Mohamad Ariff made the ruling as Datuk Seri Dr Ismail Mohamed Said (BN-Kuala Krau) had sought the Speaker's advice on the previous decision made by Pandikar Amin over the matter.

Pandikar Amin in 2016 ruled that the Parliament should not discuss the ongoing lawsuit by the DoJ. He said that ministers need not answer questions related to the civil suits in the Dewan Rakyat, citing subjudice.
