KUALA LUMPUR, 3 March 2009: Police will stop a group which plans to hand over a memorandum to certain Members of Parliament (MPs) in Parliament on Thursday to ensure that there is no trouble within and outside the building.
Kuala Lumpur police chief Datuk Wira Mohamad Sabtu Osman said police would take firm action including enforcing tighter security to thwart the group.
“We have tolerated it many times. This time we will not allow such things to happen,” he told reporters.
He said this when asked to comment on plans by about 300 individuals to assemble in Parliament on Thursday and hand over a memorandum to voice their displeasure over the fatal shooting of six criminals by police in Kulim last month.
He advised the people not to join the assembly because action could be taken against them as the assembly was illegal under the Police Act.
He said that besides blocking roads leading to Parliament, stringent checks would be conducted on individuals entering Parliament including those brought in by MPs.
“This is to ensure that no one slips through because in the past, certain parties succeeded in handing over memoranda after being brought in by certain MPs,” he said. — Bernama
