KOTA KINABALU: Several Oppo­sition party members are being sought by police for allegedly taking part in an illegal assembly at a roundabout in Beaufort, 100km from here.

Beaufort police chief Deputy Supt Azmir Abd Razak said his officers questioned a man, believed to be the group’s leader, during the assembly at Kampung Bingkul on Saturday morning.

“We are looking for several more people to have their statements taken,” he said.

He said during the assembly, a group of 17 people wearing the Parti Warisan Sabah T-shirts, were seen holding banners while calling for support for their party leader.

DSP Azmir said the supporters also asked passing car drivers to honk their horns for support.

They dispersed soon after following instructions from a traffic policeman.

He said it was up to the CPO or Attorney-General’s Chambers to decide whether the participants in the illegal assembly should be charged for failing to seek permission from the state authorities for their gathering.

“For now, our focus is to get statements from those involved,” he said.
