NGOs want police take legal action against Ambiga, Anwar
KUALA LUMPUR: Police have been asked to act against the organisers of the protest rally which turned violent and destructive in the federal capital last Saturday.
Three non-governmental organisations (NGOs), namely the Suara Anak Muda 1Malaysia, Kelab Mahasiswa 1Malaysia and Persatuan Veteran Tentera Melayu lodged reports at the Dang Wangi district police contingent headquarters, here, today.
Dang Wangi police chief, ACP Mohamed Zulkarnian Abdul Rahman confirmed having received the three police reports.
The three NGOs asked police to take legal action against the rally organisers including lawyer Datuk S. Ambiga and oppposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and those who participated in the rally, which caused chaos, and for violating the court injunction that prohibited the gathering from being held at Dataran Merdeka.
They said the unruly rally had also caused injuries to policemen and media personnel, as well as damage to public property and police vehicles.
Persatuan Veteran Tentera Melayu (Malay Army Veterans Association) president, Mohd Ali Baharom said the association urged the Home Ministry to charge all those responsible soon, especially Ambiga, as they were worried she might organise more of such gatherings.
Kelab Mahasiswa 1Malaysia (1Malaysia Undergraduates Club) president Muhammad Nor Kasim said it regretted that there were university students involved in the illegal rally.
"We are sad that the students failed to realise that they were just being made use of by groups serving their personal interests," he said.
Meanwhile, Suara Anak Muda 1Malaysia (1Malaysia Young People's Voice) president, Arman Azha Abu Hanifah said the opposition leaders involved were not fit to be leaders as they were prepared to divide the people.
He said the NGOs would jointly send a memorandum to the Home Ministry urging it to carry out a thorough investigation into the violation of the law and court injunction by the rally organisers and others involved. -- BERNAMA
