AG - "we're not lobbying senators"

Sunday, May 8, 2016 - 20:00

Meanwhile, Attorney General Faris Al-Rawi says the government is not lobbying independent senators.

In an immediate response, he refuted claims being made by the opposition saying the meeting was simply an opportunity for the independent senators to clarify their concerns.

He says it would be irresponsible for the meetings to be held privately because it is a matter of national security.

The AG also dismissed the claims of hypocrisy being made by the opposition.
