Hisham wants to know why he is suspended

FORMER Umno vice-president Hishammuddin Hussein remains unaware of the reasons why he was punished with a six-year suspension by the party last January, he said.

As such, the former defence minister doubted the sincerity of Umno president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi’s invitation for members who had been expelled or suspended from the party to rejoin its ranks, Bernama reported.

“As far as I know, he (Zahid) said we have to re-apply to be accepted. Second, it has to be brought to the disciplinary committee, but for me, to this day I do not know why I was suspended.

“The disciplinary committee didn’t call me in for questioning. Therefore, I don’t even know if what has been said (by Zahid) recently is sincere,” he was quoted as saying at a press conference in Parliament today.
