During today's Parliament session, MPs rejected the parliamentary legal committee's decision to waive the immunity of MP Saddah Habashneh and refer him to the judiciary on corruption cases.

The legal committee has been attributed to lifting the immunity of MP Habashneh, but the deputies violated the committee’s decision and rejected it.

"My case is fabricated by Prime Minister Omar Razzaz and Interior Minister Salameh Hammad to get me out of the Parliament," Habashneh said during the session.
