TUBROK – Media Advisor of the Head of the House of Representatives (HoR), Fathi Al-Marimi, denied the existence of a relationship between the shooting incident in front of the headquarters of HoR and holding its session for voting on the Constitutional Referendum Law.
“We deny what spread out through media about the presence of armed clashes around the headquarters of the House of Representatives injuring many including MP Saleh Hashim, officer Walid Shaeri and others,” Al-Marimi said.
