Parti Warisan Sabah president Mohd Shafie Apdal will not vote for PAS hudud bill if it’s tabled this Parliament sitting.

His stand is the same as Sarawak, Shafie told reporters at Parliament lobby today.

Shafie added his concern is more towards addressing the means and requirements of Sabah people.

In May, PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang tabled Private Members’ Bill to amend the Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act.

Hadi has defended that they were not introducing hudud law but only to increase the Syariah Courts’ powers to increase stiffer penalties.
