KUALA LUMPUR: It will be business as usual for traders at the Golden Triangle commercial heart here on Sept 16 – the day of the proposed red-shirt rally, says the Bukit Bintang-KLCC (BBKLCC) Tourism Association,

Following a meeting with the police and Pemandu’s Reducing Crime NKRA (National Key Result Area) unit, stakeholders had taken steps to address “uncertainties” arising from the event dubbed the red-shirt rally.

The steps include appropriate action plans and corresponding security measures.

“The police are certain that all the necessary steps to control and contain any eventualities arising from the event will be put in place, and as such, we would be operating as per normal to maintain our daily commercial and public activity,” it said in a statement yesterday.

BBKLCC boasts over 3,000 stores in nine malls within the Golden Triangle shoppers’ paradise, from BB Plaza to Suria KLCC.

During the meeting, Kuala Lumpur deputy police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Law Hong Soon said the rally had been declared illegal due to the absence of official notification and approval by venue owners to accommodate the event.

“However, necessary precautions have been set in motion,” the statement said.

It said the police would see to adequate strategic deployment being carried out to ensure public safety within the precinct.

Meanwhile, Communication and Multimedia Minister Datuk Seri Dr Salleh Said Keruak said the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) would go after anyone who incited the public to participate in the rally.

On Wednesday, Dang Wangi OCPD Asst Comm Zainol Samah said police would investigate a racially-charged article that urged the public to join the rally.

Last month, the MCMC blocked websites promoting the illegal Bersih 4 rally in a move to prevent it from undermining the country’s stability.
