The letters of termination issued by the Bersatu organising secretary to ex-premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad and four other Bersatu parliamentarians have no legal standing and are invalid, claimed lawyer Mohamed Haniff Khatri Abdulla.

"The letters of ‘termination’ of the members dated May 28 are not valid and applicable as they were signed by Muhammad Suhaimi Yahya (in his capacity) as organising secretary of Bersatu, a position that is neither recognised nor defined in the party constitution," said Haniff in a statement last night.
