Onek promised Parliament during debate on the corruption in the oil sector Tuesday he would step aside to enable investigations into allegations that he accepted I million Euros as bribe from an oil company to be concluded.

He was expected to forward his resignation letter to the appointing authority yesterday.

Details are still scanty and we are still treating this as a rumour.

MPs submitted evidence before Parliament that Onek received huge sums of money via a bank account in UAE.

He denied the allegations.

If true, he could be the fourth minister to relinquish his position over corruption in a week.
