Police: Black505 Rally is ILLEGAL..and we’ll get the ARMY to back us!

_______________________________________________

PADANG MERBOK! KL BLACK505 RALLY, SATURDAY 22 JUNE 2013 AT 12NOON.

IS THE RALLY ILLEGAL?

21 Jun

1. Police making a big deal about how tomorrow’s rally is unlawful because there is no permission from DBKL to use the padang.

2. This is wrong. The rally does not become illegal/unlawful just because notice might be defective.

3. Defective notification does not turn rally unlawful/illegal – only that organisers may be charged under PAA2012. Not participants.

And like I said, that only means notification may be defective – liability on organisers later. X not make rally illegal.

WHY SHOULD PR PLAN CLASHES? Rafizi slams ‘lies’ by KL police chief, to sue for defamation

Written by  Rafizi Ramli

I was shocked by the statement Kuala Lumpur police chief, Dato Mohamed Salleh released a while ago. Among other things, the statement accused the organizers of issuing a directive to provoke the police.

As the official spokesperson of the Black 505 rallies, I vehemently deny the allegations. The police can evaluate all my press releases and reports on all the gatherings. None have directed any provocation or roughness against the police force.

I am also the main organizer of the gathering at Padang Merbok tomorrow and am involved in all the planning. At no time did we ever threatened any roughness against the police force, but instead I could communicate well with the Dang Wangi police chief ACP Zainuddin Ahmad.

As such, the statement issued by Dato ‘Mohamed Salleh is not true and gives a bad impression of me as the organizer. I have instructed my lawyers to take legal action against Dato’ Mohamed Salleh as his statement was untrue and defames me.

I also defend my statement made this afternoon that the organizers had received an informal signal from the senior police leadership that the police will co-operate to allow the rally to proceed smoothly tomorrow. I trust this decision will be adhered to by all levels of leadership of the police as well as in the Home Ministry.

Rally-goers ordered to provoke us, claim cops
7:18PM Jun 21, 2013

The Kuala Lumpur police have claimed that organisers of the ‘Black 505′ rally tomorrow have ordered its participants to “provoke” authorities who are stationed at Padang Merbok and the seven gathering points, with the purpose of “creating a riot”.

NONE“The provocation is in order to trigger the anger of the police towards participants of the rally which can create a riot at the respective locations,” KL police chief Mohmad Salleh (right) said in a statement today.

He also claimed that the riot will be created in order to demonstrate police violence to “the whole world”.

“The organisers are expected to create riots around Kuala Lumpur, and information will be spread to the whole world through communication mediums in order to demonstrate the police violence,” he said in a strongly worded statement on the eve of the rally.

He discouraged people from joining the rally, claiming that “it was clear” that the intention of the organisers, without naming anyone in particular, was to see “a clash between the police and the participants”.

Cops agree to facilitate Black 505, claims PKR

Key organiser of tomorrow’s ‘Black 505’ rally PKR said they have received unofficial notification from the Dang Wangi police district headquarters that the police will facilitate the rally.

This is on condition that the rally’s participants do not damage public property, said party strategies director Rafizi Ramli in a statement today.

“I wish to thank the Dang Wangi police chief Zainuddin Ahmad for his assistance including his willingness to sit down and discuss with me and my Pakatan Rakyat colleagues (even though the meeting was called off),” he said.

However earlier when asked to confirm a news report on the same matter, Zainuddin told Malaysiakini via SMS, “Police will take action against those who do not obey the Peaceful Assembly Act. Anything else, no comment. Thank you.”

Earlier today before receiving the police’s purported unofficial notification, Rafizi told Malaysiakini that leaders of tomorrow’s rally have been told to “play by ear” during the event because the organisers have yet to receive any official indication on how the police would react to it.

JUNE 22 BLACK 505: Don’t you dare beat up the people – PKR warns police, govt

Written by  Malaysia Chronicle

PKR youth leaders warned Prime Minister Najib Razak’s government and the police to be professional in their conduct and not conspire to beat up people attending the Black 505 rally due to be held at the Padang Merbok field nearby to Parliament House and the Lake Gardens in Kuala Lumpur on June 22.

“Once the police start provoking and beating up the people, then the demonstration become ‘teruk’ (disastrous). The police must give the fullest cooperation in making sure the rally goes on smoothly and peacefully. If the police start to act like thugs beating up people for no reason, then it will be a shame not only for the image of the country but also for the police,” Afif Bahardin, a PKR Youth leader told a press conference on Friday.

THE POLICE HAVE STATED THAT THEY WILL CALL OUT THE ARMY TO BACK THEM!

Malaysiakini

Why call in the army for Black 505, asks PKR
12:57PM Jun 21, 2013
PKR has slammed the Internal Security and Public Order Department’s statement that the army is standing by to help the police in handling the Black 505 rally in Kuala Lumpur tomorrow.“Unless provoked, all the recent rallies held were peaceful and orderly and none of the rallies reported any unwanted behavior.“The call for the Armed Forces to intervene seems to question the incompetence of the police force.“We are sure the KL police are more than capable to handle a peaceful crowd.“It seems the ruling party has once again put together a plot to scare and instill fear in the rakyat who are determined to go out this Saturday and make their demands,” said PKR vice president Tian Chua in a statement today.He reminded the authorities that the rally was not a political one, but “a rally for the rakyat by the rakyat who has been let down, especially by the Election Commission (EC) who has failed to maintain a free and fair elections in Malaysia”.

Black 505 Gathering Still Classified As Illegal – Police

KUALA LUMPUR, June 20 – Police maintain the classification for the ‘Black 505’ gathering expected to be held at Padang Merbok this Saturday, as illegal because the organisers did not receive the approval from Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL).

Dang Wangi police chief, ACP Zainuddin Ahmad said the planned gathering would be completely wrong if the organisers insisted to proceed with it as it would violate Section 11 of Peaceful Assembly Act 2012, which requires the land owner or occupant’s approval.

Speaking to Bernama when contacted, Zainuddin said police would investigate the matter based on the existing legal provisions if the organisers insisted to hold the public rally.

The gathering, organised by the opposition pact, is to protest against the 13th general election results. – BERNAMA

Najib’s dark hand seen in sudden police U-Turn: World looks at M’sia on June 22 – Anwar

Written by  Maria Begum, Malaysia Chronicle

It looks like the Black 505 rallies are gathering steam despite best efforts by Prime Minister Najib Razak’s government to suppress the runaway popularity of the newly-formed but fast-growing people’s movement.

“We are not going to be put off,” Tan Kee Kwong, the MP for Wangsa Maju, told Malaysia Chronicle.

But while Tan’s Pakatan Rakyat coalition – which spearheaded the rallies – is raring to go, Najib may not be ready to give the go-ahead to a mammoth gathering planned for June 22 at the Padang Merbok field nearby to the Parliament House and the Lake Gardens in Kuala Lumpur.

The PM’s hand is seen in the last-minute cancellation of a meeting between Pakatan Rakyat leaders and the Kuala Lumpur police.

“Initially when the OCPD  requested for a meeting, I considered it as a positive sign, meaning that the police were willing to co-operate because the message was very conciliatory,” PKR strategy director Rafizi Ramli told Malaysia Chronicle.

“The fact that it was cancelled at the last minute signifies Najib’s intervention, so I do expect the standoff (between the police and the organizers) to continue.”

*MEETING CALLED OFF!

Malaysian Insider

Black 505: Meeting with cops called off

By Elizabeth Zachariah
June 20, 2013

Hours after Pakatan Rakyat leaders said they had been asked to meet the Dang Wangi police chief for a discussion over the Black 505 rally, the latter was instead summoned to Bukit Aman for a meeting with his superiors.

“The meeting is off,” chuckled PKR’s strategic director Rafizi Ramli, adding that this would not deter them from continuing their plan to hold the rally this Saturday at Padang Merbok.

Reiterating that the police should be allowed to make a decision without any interference from Putrajaya, Rafizi said the police had been co-operative from the start.

“I appreciate that they wanted to meet but I knew that this was subject to approval from the powers-that-be,” he added.

…..

Meanwhile Federal Internal Security and Public Order director Datuk Seri Salleh Mat Rasid said police would seek help from the army to handle whatever situation that could arise if the opposition went on with their plans for the rally.

“At the moment we are stil capable of ensuring security. We are in constant communications with the army and they will be called in if we need their help,” he told Bernama. – June 20, 2013.

Will the police help the people or will they obstruct the peaceful gathering

Meanwhile, with 2 days to go, Pakatan Rakyat leaders have been called up to see the police chief at the Dang Wangi station this evening to discuss “matters related to public security”.

The Pakatan leaders are PKR strategy director Rafizi Ramli, DAP’s Loke Siew Fook and PAS’ Syed Azman Syed Ahmad. Although the brief statement issued by the Pakatan secretariat did not give details, it looks like the grilling is related to the June 22 Black 505 rally due to be held at the Padang Merbok field this Saturday at 12.00 noon.

According to secretariat, a press conference will be held at around 5.00pm.

Meanwhile, Rafizi told Malaysia Chronicle he expects the meeting to center around Saturday’s event, which aims to provide a platform for Malaysians to express their unhappiness at the evident fraud and vote rigging that went on during the recently-concluded May 5 general election.

“I was under the impression that the meetinng was to work out safety and crowd control arrangement for the June 22 Black 505. If this is true, then I am hopeful it will be a positive meeting,” Rafizi told Malaysia Chronicle.
