PARLIAMENT| A query on whether Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak was a suspect in the probes related to 1MDB led to an heated argument between a minister and lawmaker.

It started when Gobind Singh Deo (DAP-Puchong) posed the question to Finance Minister II Johari Abdul Ghani.

At first, Johari said he did not have an answer to that question, but when pressed, told Gobind to meet him outside.

This angered the DAP legal bureau chief, who said that he wanted an answer in the House.

"You want to tell me the answer outside the House, that means you have an answer," Gobind said.
