Cape Town - Yunus Carrim, ANC MP and chairperson of the standing committee on finance, took a tough stance against the fact that the Financial Intelligence Centre (FIC) Bill has been sent back to Parliament for "constitutional reasons".

"Parliament is not going to tremble and buckle just because the president's lawyers said it's unconstitutional. If the presidency's lawyers are wrong, they're wrong," Carrim said.

His comments came after President Jacob Zuma on November 30 had referred the bill back to Parliament, because of reservations about its constitutionality.
