KUALA LUMPUR: Police have opened another investigation paper on claims of violation of the Peaceful Assembly Act 2012 over early campaigning for the Kajang by-election.

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar said four papers have been opened over the non-submission of a  written application 10 days before conducting the campaign.

"We will take action against those who violate the Act. We will discuss the matter with the Attorney-General.

"Some investigations have been completed. We are not focusing on the same individual. Let us investigate first. Once it is completed, we will bring it to court, then we will know the individuals concerned," he told reporters.

Selangor deputy police chief Datuk Abdul Rahim Jaafar was reported as confirming that three investigation papers had been opened on Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim under Section 9(5) of the Act because the police were not informed earlier of the election campaign he conducted.

In another development, Khalid said police were holding discussions with the Attorney-General on the investigation into the video clip produced by Seputeh MP Teresa Kok which was allegedly seditious.

 "We will continue the investigation and I want the person who made the video to stop. It seems that there will be a Bahasa Malaysia version. I say enough, as Malaysians can understand even Chinese.

 "Enough with the hate campaign against certain people. What is the purpose? It will only disrupt harmony in our society," he said.

On the tunnel incident involving the T-Team and Johor Darul Ta'zim (JDT) at the Tan Sri Haji Hassan Yunos Stadium in Larkin, Johor Baharu on Feb 1, Khalid said police would be calling more witnesses to assist in the investigation. - Bernama
