I am sure they are. A terrible nuisance especially when you live in Bukit Damansara. That's not a busy neighbourhood. So, you can just imagine hordes of people outside your gate -- and their main aim is to be a nuisance.
They say they have a good legitimate reason to be doing what they're doing outside (Bersih chairman) S Ambiga's residence.
They've called themselves the KL Petty Traders Action Council whose members' livelihood on April 28 was affected by the Bersih rally.
Making a statement there. Like you kacau kita, kita kacau you. So, deal with it.
But Segambut MP Lim Lip Eng says they must be hauled up for contravening Section 427 of the Penal Code.
Under Section 427, anybody
who commits mischief and causes damage amounting to RM25 or more shall
be imprisoned for a term up to two years or fined, or both, according to Lim.
The Deputy IGP (Khalid Abu Bakar) had
reiterated that police action would not be taken against the traders because the
protest was not an offence as it was in public space
Lim was quoted in the Malay Mail: "This
is not a Local Government Act but a criminal act. The Deputy IGP must be sent back to Pulapol
to re-learn all these Acts. Their (traders) action did not disturb
Ambiga alone but all her neighbours as well."
said, their act could be considered as public nuisance with
the possibility of perpetrators being fined up to RM400 under Section
290 of the Penal Code.
(waaah...well said, YB. People shouldn't break the law!!!!),
the traders had marked out night market stall lots on the road in front
of Ambiga's house in yellow paint.
According to the Malay Mail, this was part of the two-day
protest, beginning today, where the traders are setting up 60 stalls to
serve an expected crowd of 10,000 from 3.30pm to 8pm.
Kuala Lumpur City Hall has denied issuing them permits for the stalls.
Ambiga had said Malaysians must reject this dangerous trend which intrudes personal space.
be fair, the police and City Hall have been here since the night the
yellow lines were removed. I'm very grateful to them for providing this
level of protection," she said after meeting members from Pakatan Rakyat
I'd really like to see how this whole thing ends...
