PETALING JAYA: Former Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Anifah Aman defied the Cabinet when he did not sign the Rome Statute in 2011, says G25 spokesperson Datuk Noor Farida Ariffin.

Noor Farida, who headed the Legal Department of the Foreign Ministry at that time, said the proposal to accede to the Rome Statute received the support of former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and his Cabinet in 2011, despite objections from then Attorney General’s Chamber (AGC).
