Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said the government's decision to accede to the statute without due debate in Parliament was worrying.

A motion on this matter has been submitted and the Speaker is expected to make a ruling next Monday.

The opposition has also filed a Private Member's Bill to urge the federal government to withdraw from the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC).
