Dead bodies, ethics, politics and legal mishaps made a strange mix during Tuesday’s parliamentary session, all said and done in a cool atmosphere, surely because the subject on the agenda of the Private Notice Question of the Leader of the Opposition was more a matter of respect rather than that of marking points to gain political mileage.
