Speaker advices Mion MP to direct question to National Security Minister

Speaker of Parliament, Professor Aaron Michael Oquaye has advised Member of Parliament for Mion, Mohammed Abdul-Aziz to direct his question on visa racketeering scandal at the Australia Commonwealth game to the National Security Minister. 

This happened on Thursday the 14th of November 2019, when the Mion MP wanted the investigation made public by the Youth and Sports Minister and wanted the ruling of the Speaker when not contend with the sector Minister’s answer.
   
According to the Youth and Sports Minister, on the 6th of April 2018, the matter was referred to the National Security Minister for investigation and he was not in position to speak further on the issue.
 
Speaker Oquaye noted that if the Youth and Sports Minister had anything on the matter it was before the National Security Minister and a question should rather be filled to him. 

The Mion MP wanted the Youth and Sports Minister to answer the question because the National Security Ministry was not a court. 

However, not happy with the ruling of the speaker and thinking the Speaker has allowed the Youth and Sports Minister off providing critical answers, some Minority MPs kept shouting at the background.

Some murmured what the NPP government was hiding when other MPs from the Minority side of the House who wanted to ask critical question were turned down by the Speaker.
