The Daily Dispatch- Parliament is biased in dealing with contempt – NDC MP.

 

Minority chief whip, Mohammed Mubarak Muntaka has conceded that parliament is biased in disciplining persons whose conduct affronts the dignity of the House of Legislature.

He said parliament tends to protect its own when an MP is deemed or found to have acted in contempt of the law making body, but explained that when it comes to MPs sometimes it is very difficult to get someone to send you the evidence.

He was reacting to concerns by a section of the public who accuse Parliament of being so quick in wanting to punish others who make contemptuous statements about it, but always spares its members who engage in similar contemptuous acts.
