KUALA LUMPUR: The three PKR leaders called in by police to help in investigations into the chaos at a ceramah by Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim in Taman Melawati on Friday night have had their statements recorded.
PKR deputy president Azmin Ali, along with state assemblymen Saari Sungib and Amirudin Shari arrived at the Ampang police headquarters around 10.30am yesterday.
They were accompanied by PKR legal bureau head Latheefa Koya, party vice-president and lawyer N. Surendran, lawyer Fadiah Nadwa and Ampang MP Zuraida Kamarudin.
They were questioned until noon.
It was reported on Sunday that two men who tried to stop the police from dispersing the crowd were arrested at the ceramah.
Azmin said the ceramah, which was held in the compound of the Gombak MP's service centre, was actually legal and the police should not have intervened.
“In fact, it was the police who acted illegally to disrupt the gathering,” he said.
Surendran said they were looking into filing a civil suit against the 16 policemen who dispersed the crowd that day, Ampang Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Amiruddin Jamaluddin, Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar and Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishamuddin Hussein.
