IPOH, 3 March 2009: Two Pakatan Rakyat assemblypersons have lodged police reports against the Ipoh OCPD for stopping 28 assemblypersons from entering the Perak Darul Ridzuan Building this morning.
The two assemblypersons, Khalil Idham Lim (Titi Serong) and Nga Kor Ming (Pantai Remis), also lodged a similar police report against the state secretary.
Both assemblypersons lodged the reports at the Ipoh police headquarters at 2.55pm today.
Khalil told reporters that a group of “thugs”, whom he claimed to be Umno supporters, and a Federal Reserve Unit (FRU) team led by OCPD ACP Azisman
Alias had stopped him and 27 other Pakatan Rakyat assemblypersons from entering the building to attend the state legislative assembly sitting.
“We were told by Azisman not to enter the building on the instruction of the state secretary,” he said.
He claimed that both Azisman and the state secretary had committed a criminal offence by restraining members of the assembly from exercising their duties.
Nga described the incident as “embarrassing” and “unprecedented in the country’s 52 years of nationhood.”
He said the state secretary should be held responsible for the incident for locking the door to the building, and forcing the state legislative assembly to convene an “emergency sitting” under a tree not far from the building.
Azisman, when met, confirmed that police had received both reports. — Bernama
