KUALA LUMPUR: Two more PKR leaders have been called by police to have their statements recorded regarding the chaos at a ceramah by Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim at Taman Melawati on Friday night.
State assemblymen Saari Sungib and Amirudin Shari both confirmed that they received a notice from police at their homes between 11.30pm and 2am on Sunday night requesting them to assist in investigations. It was earlier reported that PKR deputy president Azmin Ali had also been called by police to have his statement recorded.
All three men were requested to appear at Ampang district police headquarters at 10am on Monday.
However, they had asked the police to reschedule the time as they were busy at the state assembly sitting.
“All three of us might go together on Wednesday to give our statements,” said Amirudin when contacted yesterday.
It was reported on Sunday that two men who tried to stop the police from dispersing the crowd were arrested at the ceramah. Azmin has protested about the strong presence of police at his house, expressing unhappiness at their “over the top” approach in handing the notice to him.
The Gombak MP and Bukit Antarabangsa assemblyman said three police cars waited outside his house for three hours, which he labelled as “ trespassing” and “acting beyond limits”.
“It is okay for them to come to my house and give me the notice but not to wait there till the wee hours,” he told reporters yesterday in Shah Alam on the first day of the state assembly sitting.
“My lawyers will look into this as I am not happy with the way the Ampang OCPD Asst Comm Abdul Jalil Hassan handled the matter,” said Azmin.
