Johannesburg - Congress of the People MP Dirk Feldman, who stumbled to prominence following an alleged drunken incident on a flight to India, will face a multi-party disciplinary hearing, the Saturday Star reported.

The paper reported that Parliament decided the matter would be referred to the National Council of Provinces. The Council said it had been in contact with Cope on the hearing.

Feldman was visiting India earlier this month as part of a parliamentary delegation when he allegedly attempted to open an exit while intoxicated, and while the plane was in flight.

Feldman said he would co-operate with the investigation.

Cope Chief Whip Dennis Bloem said Feldman has given the party his side of the story. They are now awaiting a report from council chair Mninwa Mahlangu, who was on an earlier flight to India.
