Police advises people not to be involved in Black 505 rally as organisers want to create chaos

(Bernama) – Police today advised members of the public not to be involved in the rally tomorrow following information that claims the organisers deliberately want to see clashes between the authorities and the rally participants.

Kuala Lumpur police chief Datuk Mohmad Salleh said based on the tip-off, the organisers had told all protesters to create provocation against the authorities tasked to control the crowd at Padang Merbok, here and seven other locations in the city.

“The provocation is intended to create police anger at the demonstrators and thus create chaos at these places,” he said in a statement here today.

He said that according to the tip-off, the organisers were also expected to spark chaos in Kuala Lumpur, in order to show to the world the ‘violence’ caused by authorities.

Mohmad also stressed that the rally was against the law because it was in conflict with the Peaceful Assembly Act 2012.

He said the police would not hesitate to take stern action against any person who willfully violated the act and any other law enshrined in the constitution.
