KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): The police will call up the organisers of Saturday's (May 4) Rally To Defend the Sovereignty of Islam and the Constitution at Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman, which was said to be without the approval of the authorities.

Without elaborating, Dang Wangi District Police Chief ACP Mohd Fahmi Visunathan Abdullah told Bernama that the organisers would be called up in the near future to assist investigation.

He was reported to have said on Saturday that the notice from the organisers of the rally opposite a shopping centre was incomplete as the organisers - Gerakan Pembela Ummah (Ummah) - had failed to submit the notice of approval from Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL).

Known as the 405 rally, the protesters highlighted issues such as Rome Statute, the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (Icerd), the Unified Examination Certificate, and the death of fireman Muhammad Adib Mohd Kassim.

Mohd Fahmi said so far no police report had been made against any individual who spoke at the rally. - Bernama
