IPOH: A magistrate's court here fixed June 25 to hear the case of four people charged with unlawful assembly in front of the Kuala Kluang police station in Chemor three years ago. 

Magistrate Hatim Musa fixed the date after the deputy public prosecutor’s office had rejected the defendants' application to waive the charges against them. 

Tan Kin Siah, 42, Chan Sin Chong, 65, and Chong Min Tow, 61, who are members of the Kuala Kuang Anti-Stench Committee, and K. Kunasekaran, 40, of the non-governmental organisation Alaigal, had claimed trial to a charge under Section 27(5)(b) of the Police Act 1967 on Oct 25, 2002. 

They were charged with meeting in front of the police station with the intention of participating in an unlawful gathering, assembly or procession at about 10.50am on April 1, 2001 and refusing to follow instructions from Chief Inspector Chong Foo Yon to disperse.
