Bung Moktar may face suspension for F-word

Bung Moktar was among two MP asked to leave the August hall after they refused to heed Mohd Rashid's call not to interrupt proceedings.

KUALA LUMPUR: Outspoken MP Datuk Seri Bung Moktar Radin is likely to face Parliament's wrath in his use of the F-word during a debate on Aug 7.

Housing and Local Government Minister Zuraida Kamaruddin is expected to move a motion to cite Bung (BN-Kinabatangan) to the Parliament's Rights and Privileges Committee on Thursday. 

The motion to cite the Kinabatangan MP comes despite the Sabahan lawmaker apologising for using the word against Willie Mongin (PH-Puncak Borneo) after the latter questioned if Bung had gone to a casino.

The incident happened when the Sales Tax Bill was being debated. Bung could face a six-month suspension.
