KUALA LUMPUR: PAS vice-president Mohamad Sabu and Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) information chief Tian Chua claimed trial to an amended charge of being members of an unlawful assembly to commit public nuisance last November. 

Mohamad, 54, and Tian Chua, 45, whose real name is Chua Tian Chang, were alleged to have committed the offence at Jalan Istana Baru near the junction of Lebuhraya Mahameru-Lebuhraya Persekutuan between 4pm and 4.30pm on Nov 10. 

If convicted, the two could be jailed up to six months’ or fined, or both, under Section 143 of the Penal Code. 

They also pleaded not guilty to an alternative charge of taking part in the Bersih unlawful assembly at the same place and time.  

If found guilty, the two could be fined a maximum of RM10,000 each and jailed up to a year under the Section 27(8) of Police Act 1967. 

DPP Ishak Mohd Yusof tendered the amended charges yesterday for the duo saying that both included extra details on the venue of the alleged rally.  

He said the similar charges for 15 others, including PKR national integration chief N. Gobalakrishnan, 48, would remain the same.
