Turkey

Another rule of parliamentary fight club seems to be: If you interrupt a lawmaker’s speech, expect a possible brawl to ensue. Tension gathered at a parliamentary session in Turkey in July 2013 when members of the country’s political opposition continued to hurl questions at a Deputy Prime Minister as he delivered a speech on a bill. The ruling party proceeded to beat up the interjecting lawmaker, he even had his eyebrow ripped open, according to Hurriyetdailynews.vom
