DAP operations centre closes down

Malaysia Today report from Kuala Terengganu

The DAP bilek gerakan (operations centre) in Kampong China, Kuala Terengganu, was ordered to close by the state government. DAP was told that the order came from the Terengganu Menteri Besar.

Soon after that a police patrol car arrived and the police officer demanded Raja Petra Kamarudin’s identity card. Raja Petra refused to hand over his identity card and demanded to know why they wanted it. The police officer replied that it was an order ‘from the top’.

Raja Petra still refused to comply and asked that the superior officer ‘from the top’ come there himself if he wanted his identity card. The police officer then went back to the patrol car to radio his superior officer.

Raja Petra followed the police officer to the patrol car and told them that he did not have his identity card with him and that they can arrest him if they wanted to. The police officers just drove off without any further action.
