There's a court order against the rally planned by NGO Protes to be held in front of the Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC) today.
This is to protest against the rise in prices of goods.
Police have named 5 Protes representatives -- Dr Hatta Ramli, Tian Chua, Arutchelvam Subramaniam, Simon Ooi and Ronnie Liew -- and warned them against taking part in the rally.Dang Wangi police chief ACP Zulkarnain Abdul Rahman said if they ignored the order, they could be detained immediately.
Police obtained the court order from the Kuala Lumpur Magistrate Court yesterday.
Here's the rest of the Bernama story:
The (court) order was also relevant for any associate member of Protes and anyone suspected of participating in the rally, he said.
Zulkarnaian said the police would put up copies of the order tonight in the vicinity of the area where the rally was likely to be held.
"The police have designated two restricted zones within a one-kilometre radius of the KLCC building encompassing Jalan Ampang, Jalan Lumba Kuda, Jalan P. Ramlee and the area around the KLCC Assyakirin Mosque.
"If they defy the order, the police will not hesitate to take stern action," he said.- BERNAMA
