Debate on ear squat issue sought

SPEAKER Tan Sri Ramli Ngah Talib rejected an Opposition request to sidestep House rules to allow an emergency motion about a police detainee having to do ear squats in the nude. 

The issue was neither critical nor an emergency which needed him to suspend the Standing Orders, he said, in rejecting Opposition Leader Lim Kit Siang's attempt to have it debated. 

Ramli said that as Seputeh MP Teresa Kok’s motion would be up for consideration today there was no need to upset the proceedings of the House. 

Kok's motion could not be raised yesterday because it did not meet the 24-hour notice requirement as stated under the House rules.
