A Labour politician has said he feared being assaulted by a fellow Member of the Senedd (MS) after an incident in the Welsh Parliament last year.

On Wednesday night the body voted to ban Neil McEvoy from the Senedd until 21 January after a committee found he had been physically aggressive towards Labour’s Mick Antoniw.

The decision means Mr McEvoy will have his salary cut.

Mr McEvoy claimed he was being punished for something that was not true.

But the Pontypridd MS said he was worried he could be “accosted or assaulted” by Mr McEvoy for months after the incident.
