Zul Nordin is a liar, says PKR sec-gen

(FMT) SHAH ALAM: PKR secretary-general Saifuddin Nasution has turned the tables on controversial fellow MP Zulkifli Noordin and accused him of ‘lying’ about the selection of the date for the latter’s disciplinary hearing.

Speaking to FMT, Saifuddin said Zulkifli was given notice on Feb 8 to attend the disciplinary hearing which was fixed for today (Feb 18).

“He had ample time to revert to us but chose to inform the party that he could not attend the hearing just hours before his flight to South Korea yesterday for a leadership conference,” said Saifuddin.

Saifuddin also dismissed Zulkifli’s allegation that the party was well aware of his trip and that it had deliberately fixed it such that the date clashed with his trip.

Saifuddin said: “The invitation was sent out by a Korean body to all parliamentarians. The invitation was optional. Those who had spare time on their hands were free to go.

“We could not know which MP would want to go and when they would leave. Zulkifli is not telling the truth. But for (direct) language, I would say he was lying.”
