IPOH: Ipoh Timur MP Thomas Su Keong Siong (pic) has been charged for a second time under the Peaceful Assembly Act in connection with the Black 505 rally held three years ago.

The DAP MP was accused of failing to notify the police 10 days prior to the rally at Wisma Chin Woo here on May 9, 2013.

Su claimed trial to the charge before Judge Ikmal Hishan Mohd Tajuddin at the Sessions Court yesterday.

In May 2014, Su was given a discharge not amounting to an acquittal of the same charge after the Act was declared unconstitutional.

However, following a Court of Appeal ruling that Section 9 (1) of the Act is constitutional, Su was charged again.

Deputy public prosecutor Harris Ong Mohd Jeffery Ong requested bail of RM10,000.

Su’s counsel Ramkarpal Singh asked for a RM4,000 bail, saying that Su was imposed a bail of that amount when he was previously charged under that Act.

Ikmal Hishan set bail at RM8,000 with one surety.

He fixed Nov 18 for mention.
