PETALING JAYA: Umno’s disciplinary board today said it was ready to receive complaints against its MPs who attended a meeting with PKR deputy president Mohamed Azmin Ali last night, and promised a fair investigation.

The board’s chief Mohamed Apandi Ali also pledged immediate action based on existing procedures.

“It must be stressed that the party’s disciplinary board has been given the trust and responsibility with powers vested in it under the Umno constitution to carry out its duties in a stern, honest and fair manner without fear or favour,” Apandi, who is also the former attorney-general, said in a statement.

On Oct 30, Umno Supreme Council member Lokman Noor Adam wrote to the board accusing Sembrong MP Hishammuddin Hussein of inciting party leaders to join PPBM.

Lokman renewed the call today, hours after reports that Hishammuddin and several other MPs from Umno had attended a meeting at Azmin’s official residence in Putrajaya last night.
