The Legal Committee in the House of Representatives, on Wednesday, that Article 63 of the Constitution does not allow the lifting of immunity from the deputy during the legislative recess.
The committee's deputy, Almas Fadel, said that "Article 63 of the Constitution does not permit the lifting of immunity from lawmaker in the legislative recess except in certain cases, such as seizure in flagrante delicto.
She added: "We are aware of the declared dispute between the Speaker of Parliament and Deputy Zobaie, and we hope that the decision to lift the immunity has been launched from the ground of the dispute between them."
Regarding the number of deputies who are waiting to lift their immunity for different accusations, Fadel stressed that "it is not clear to us, and we do not know the exact number.
Leaks revealed on Tuesday that four other deputies were included in the decision to lift the immunity after MPs Talal Zobaie and Ibtisam al-Lahibi.
