Karpal's last day in Parliament: "Don't mess with the constitution"
10th April 2014: Gombak MP Azmin Ali, from PKR, was booted when he sought an explanation persistently from speaker Pandikar Amin Mulia for the latter's decision to prioritise government affairs and not allow Azmin's motion to condemn three judges to be placed high up the order paper.
PAS' Sepang MP Hanipa Maidin was also booted when he tried to raise a standing order as the debate regarding the speaker's refusal to accommodate the unprecedented motion by Azmin, signed by 63 MPs, heated up.
This caused a protest from the opposition bench, with the late Karpal Singh saying that the Federal Constitution is the supreme law and it supersedes Parliament's Standing Orders.
It was an emotional and teary morning at the Ipoh Hospital's Forensic Department as Bukit Gelugor MP Karpal Singh's body arrived for a post-mortem at 7.20am.
Karpal's body will be taken back to his family home in Penang today and he is expected to be cremated at the Sikh cremation hall on Jalan Gurdwara at 11am on Sunday.
Arriving with his body from Kampar, where Karpal together with his helper, Michael Cornelius, who died on-the-spot in an accident near the Gopeng exit of the North-South Expressway, was his son, Puchong MP Gobind Singh Deo.
