PETALING JAYA: The Parliament investigation into the issue of a lawyer denied entry because of her skirt length looked into the wrong incident, Women's Aid Organisation (WAO) assistant treasurer Meera Samanther said.

According to her, the investigation only looked at the initial incident at the front gate, which she called a “non-issue”, and not the second incident, which was the focus of her complaint.
