No preview of hudud bills, Kelantan MB tells Pakatan leaders demanding access


(MMO) – PAS will not disclose amendments to Kelantan’s hudud law or explain private member’s bills on the same that it will table in Parliament, despite allies’ demand for access when Pakatan Rakyat parties meet this Sunday.

Kelantan Mentri Besar Datuk Ahmad Yaakob said PKR and DAP will eventually get to view the documents on the proposed amendments to the Syariah Criminal Code II Enactment 1993, but not before after these are approved in the state assembly sitting this coming March.

“It is possible, we are ready to disclose but they will have to wait as it is still under embargo.

“The amendments have to first be officially passed at the Kelantan state assembly sitting,” Ahmad told Malay Mail Online when contacted.

Opposition Leader and PKR de facto head Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has demanded that PAS explain its latest plan to implement hudud law in Kelantan, saying that the best time to do so would be during the PR presidential council meeting this Sunday.

Anwar said PKR and DAP have not even seen either the private member’s bill or the amendments to the Syariah Criminal Code II 1993, which was passed by the Kelantan state assembly over 20 years ago.
