Cape Town - A special committee has been set up to inquire Congress of the People MP Dirk Feldman’s conduct aboard an international flight, Parliament said on Friday.

It comprised National Council of Provinces (NCOP) members Bafunani Aaron Mnguni (ANC), Mmatlala Grace Boroto (ANC), Nosilivere Winnifred Magadla (ANC), Elizabeth Christina Van Lingen (DA), Muntukaphiwana Milton Mbongiseni Zulu (IFP), and Swaphi Hendrick (Cope).

"The NCOP has been in contact with Mr Feldman’s party about the developments, to establish the multi-party committee to look into the issues, and to make recommendations to the house," Parliament said in a statement.

"The matter will be dealt with speedily, while following due process."

Feldman reportedly tried to open the door of an SAA plane in mid-flight while allegedly intoxicated on July 7.

He was part of a parliamentary delegation en route to India. He was briefly detained by India's security authorities and subsequently sent back home by Parliament's presiding officers.
