The Minister-designate for National Security has described the invasion of the military in Parliament as alarming and shocking.
He said he was personally shocked that armed military men entered the Chamber.
Responding to a question by James Agalga, the spokesperson for the Minority on security, the nominee said investigation conducted by his office revealed a Commander who thought things were getting out of control ordered his men into the chamber.
He told the Committee that what happened was unfortunate and a probe is currently being conducted.
According to him, the Commander wanted to restore order but he questioned what order the said Commander was going to be restored and the motivation behind it.
He said this should not have happened and we should not experience it again.
He disclosed a probe is currently ongoing and the said Commander who ordered the troops would be sanctioned after the probe is completed.
A joint military and police personnel moved into the Chamber of Parliament to control some disturbances on the floor In the night of the election of Speaker for the 8th Parliament.
The well-armed security detail, with some having facemasks, came to the floor of Parliament at about 3:30am reportedly on the orders of the former Minister of Defence, Mr Dominic Nitiwul.
But the Minister-designate in reacting to the matter said a Commander of GAF was the one who ordered the troops.
