KUALA LUMPUR: The police are fully prepared and ready to prevent any untoward incidents from happening during the anti-Icerd rally on Saturday (Dec 8), says Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun.
The Inspector-General of Police said Bukit Aman would monitor the event thoroughly to ensure everyone's safety.
"Kuala Lumpur City Hall has allowed the event to go on and police will issue their approval letter by Wednesday," he told a press conference after presenting diplomas to Unikop college students at the Police Training College on Tuesday (Dec 4).
The IGP reminded all involved to obey the rules and regulations to ensure that the safety of everyone is safeguarded.
Asked about calls for the event to be cancelled, Mohamad Fuzi said he hoped nothing untoward would occur.
"Those involved in the rally must do everything they can to have a peaceful gathering," he said.
On another matter, Mohamad Fuzi confirmed that Minister in the Prime Minister's Department P. Waytha Moorthy would be called in Tuesday for his statement to be recorded.
"The Bukit Aman CID will record his statement," he said.
He is among nine individuals required by police to have their statements recorded over recent comments that sparked racial tensions.
Waytha Moorthy had initially claimed that the Subang Jaya police should be probed for being late to arrive to deal with the scuffle which took place at the temple at about 2am on Monday (Nov 26).
However, on Sunday (Dec 1), Waytha Moorthy lauded the police for the "quick action" and highest level of professionalism in handling the temple issue.
