The House of Representatives had decided on January 17, 2022 to suspend Riyati’s membership for a period of two years, in line with a decision by the Legal Committee regarding a quarrel that broke out between a group of MPs under the dome in December 2021.

In this most recent update, the Lower House has voted by majority on a memorandum submitted by a group of deputies that included suspending Riyati’s sentence. This means that he will not complete the penalty imposed on him, as it has been about a year and three months since his membership was suspended.
