Speaker of Parliament Doctor Jiko Luveni

The Speaker of Parliament Doctor Jiko Luveni has today ruled that Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum did not deliberately mislead parliament in December last year when he was addressing the issue on World Rugby and television broadcasting rights.

Doctor Luveni said she has assessed opposition MP Tupou Draunidalo’s claims and she finds that the Attorney General’s statement was not so specific.

Doctor Luveni also assessed the second claim and said there is no evidence to prove that the Attorney General misled parliament.

Doctor Luveni also said that she had instructed her parliamentary staff to seek advice from other parliaments in the region to provide guidance to her on the issue of parliamentary priviledge when this issue was raised in December last year.
