Police report lodged against protesters

(The Star) – Sekretariat Suara Keamanan Mahasiswa lodged a police report against Solidariti Mahasiswa Malaysia for taking down a flag bearing Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak‘s image in front of the Umno headquarters at the Putra World Trade Centre.

Suara Keamanan chairman Muhamad Mukhlis Maghribi said the action has provoked and caused discomfort among Malaysians, especially graduates.

“We urge the police to investigate whether SMM is registered under the Registrar of Societies or the Universities and University Colleges Act 1971,” he said after lodging a report at the Patani Road police station here last night.

On Saturday, some 200 students marched under the SMM banner to push for the abolition of the UUCA and other laws they considered restrictive.

The protesters ended their march in front of the Umno headquarters and briefly took down a flag bearing Najib’s image and replaced it with an SMM flag.
