MH17: War of words over Rafizi’s fake tweet

KUALA LUMPUR: Amid the debate on the MH17 tragedy in Parliament, two MPs clashed over an alleged tweet by one of them that accused the Government of bribing Ukraine militants to hand over the plane's black boxes.

A ruckus erupted in the Dewan after Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong (BN - Ayer Hitam) pointed out that Rafizi Ramli (PKR - Pandan) had allegedly posted the tweet after Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak announced the black boxes would be in Malaysia's custody.
