Malaysia's parliament has suspended an opposition member for one year, after he called the incoming prime minister a murderer.
Gobind Singh Deo, a member of the opposition Democratic Action Party, made the comment on Thursday when he shouted "answer me, you murderer" at Najib Tun Razak, the current Malaysian deputy prime minister.
Najib is due to take over the job of prime minister next month.
Two police officers who had worked as Najib's bodyguards are currently on trial over the killing of a Mongolian woman in 2006.
Najib has denied any involvement in the case.
Gobind was suspended after the government called a vote of MPs on Monday in the Malaysian parliament.
Opposition officials have labelled the vote a "kangaroo court" and accused the government of abusing its power.
