KUALA LUMPUR – The police have received 27 reports on the Love Malaysia, End Kleptocracy Assembly planned to be held at Padang Timur, Petaling Jaya tomorrow.
Inspector-General of Police, Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun said, the police did not approve the assembly despite being informed by the Petaling Jaya City Council (PJCC) that they have given the green light to the programme organised by the oppositions.
“That is under the administration of PJCC as the local authority. We stand firm on our decision, whereby, we do not allow the assembly to be held at that location.
“Traffic could be an issue in that venue. We have suggested a more comfortable venue such as the Kelana Jaya Stadium which is more spacious. We will not give in and we will take action if the organisers break the rules,” he said at the Police Training Centre today.
Also present at the event was the Deputy Inspector-General, Tan Sri Noor Rashid Ibrahim.
Mohamad Fuzi also emphasized that the police will not repeat their statement on the issue as they have already stated their stand.
On another development, he also confirmed on the arrest of several individuals suspected to be involved with terrorism in Kelantan.
Among the arrested included a student who has the expertise of bomb making. The suspects were believed to be preparing to launch an attack.
“We will provide the information on the arrest in three days’ time, pending on police investigation,” he said without elaborating further. – MalaysiaGazette
