12 individuals called up over anti-PM rally

POLICE have identified 12 individuals, including the organiser of the ‘Perhimpunan Aman Demi Negara’ rally that took place at the public car park in front of the Seri Perdana Complex, Presint 19 in Putrajaya yesterday.

(TMI) – Kuala Lumpur police chief Rusdi Mohd Isa said they would all be called up to have their statements recorded soon.

“Police have opened an investigation paper under Section 9(5) of the Peaceful Assembly Act 2012,” he said in a statement today.

Rusdi said the organiser did not obtain a permit to hold the event as required under the Peaceful Assembly Act (Act 736) as no permission was granted by the landowner, Putrajaya Corporation.

Rusdi had previously warned the organiser that they would be breaking the law if it proceeded with the gathering as it had failed to obtain the consent of the land owner, Perbadanan Putrajaya, as required under the Peaceful Assembly Act (Act 736).

The rally yesterday was attended by about 200 people.
