‘Ber­sih has not met con­di­tions’

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

PETALING JAYA: Po­lice have de­nied claims that the Ber­sih 5 rally or­gan­iser has met con­di­tions to hold the gath­er­ing on Nov 19.

In­spec­tor-General of Po­lice Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar said: “Of­fi­cers in charge of the Dang Wangi and Brick­fields dis­tricts did re­ceive no­tices from the or­gan­iser. But both no­tices failed to com­ply with the Peace­ful Assem­bly Act 2012.”

He said the no­tices stated Dataran Merdeka as the venue of the rally but did not in­clude a con­sent let­ter from the mayor, as re­quired un­der the law.

“We un­der­stand the or­gan­iser de­cided to as­sem­ble out­side Dataran Merdeka. But to date, no no­tice re­gard­ing the change of venue has been sub­mit­ted to the po­lice.”
