Former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak has been referred to Parliament's Rights and Privileges Committee over his alleged leaking of the Felda White Paper, after a motion against him was passed after two hours of heated debates.

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Liew Vui Keong, who tabled the motion, told that to reporters at the Parliament lobby on Thursday.

Meanwhile, Opposition chief Datuk Ismail Sabri Yaakob argued that the motion against Najib should have been withdrawn, claiming that the White Paper on Felda was uploaded on Parliament's website a day before it was tabled.
