Questions on the RM2.6 billion political donation can no longer be raised in parliament, said Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Azalina Othman Said.

She said this is because such discussions are sub judice because of the Bar Council’s suit against attorney-general Mohamed Apandi Ali.

She cited Standing Order 23 (1)(g) which states that "a question shall not be so drafted as to be likely to prejudice a case under trial, or be asked to any matter which is sub judice".

The Bar is seeking a judicial review of Apandi's decision to clear Najib of any wrongdoing in the RM2.6 billion donation and RM42 million SRC International cases.
