TangkapMO1 rally illegal, no arrests so far, say Dang Wangi police
Zulaikha Zulkifli Published Today 6:17 pm
Dang Wangi police chief Zainol Samah said that the recently concluded TangkapMO1 rally urging authorities to take action against the mysterious ‘Malaysian Official 1′ (MO1) accused by US authorities to have pocketed US$731 million of stolen 1MDB monies, is not in accordance with the law.
He said that despite rally organisers having submitted a notice to police, they did not follow the guidelines outlined in the Peaceful Assembly Act 2012.
“This rally is not in accordance with the law. Even though they sent in a notice, it did not fulfill the guidelines,” he told reporters after the rally at Dataran Merdeka.
Zanol said that police estimated that a total of 2,000 protesters were at the rally today.
Asked what action will the police be taking against the organisers of the TangkapMO1 rally, Zainol said that the matter will be left up to the officers handling the investigation into the matter.
“Let police investigate,” he said when asked further.
