The Parliament has rejected a constitutional amendment to limit the unusually far-reaching immunity from prosecution enjoyed by its lawmakers. On Feb. 8, the lower house of Parliament voted to remove that immunity when lawmakers leave office, but on Thursday the upper house, the Senate, voted 27-10 to reject that proposal.
