Above is the seditious statement towards the Judicial Institution made by Nurul Izzah Anwar in Parliament on March 10, 2015.
Using Clause 2 of Article 63 of the Federal Constitution, the opposition leaders defended her by claiming that Members of Parliament (MP) can say whatever they want in the Parliament; and starting to create stories so that actions will be taken to others who are against them.
In fact they even accused the Inspector General of Police for “blatant abuse of power”.
The Malaysian Insider reported Nurul Izzah as saying:
“I think it is quite clear. My arrest is a blatant abuse of power by the IGP, and I hold the prime minister responsible for allowing transgressions against parliamentarians. I have immunity granted to me… on the issues raised in Parliament,” the Lembah Pantai MP said after being released at 12.30pm at the Dang Wangi police headquarters today. – TMI

No. 45, 1970 [P.U. (A) 282/1970].
Article 3(a) and 3(c) of the Sedition Act says:

(a) to bring into hatred or contempt or to excite disaffection
against any Ruler or against any Government;
(c) to bring into hatred or contempt or to excite disaffection
against the administration of justice in Malaysia or in
