IGP: Statements recorded from more than four people over Undi18 protest

LANGKAWI (Bernama): Police have recorded statements from more than four people over the rally held at Jalan Parlimen recently to protest the Election Commission’s (EC) delay in lowering the voting age to 18.

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador said they included politicians and the organisers, adding that investigation was still ongoing with more witnesses expected to be called.

"We will call the individuals concerned for questioning on their involvement in the rally," he told reporters after launching the Langkawi K9 section here on Sunday (April 4).

Last Friday, Segambut MP Hannah Yeoh; Simpang Renggam MP Maszlee Malik; Petaling Jaya MP Maria Chin Abdullah and former Bersih chairman Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan were called to the Dang Wangi police headquarters to give their statements on the March 27 rally.

Abdul Hamid said the police respected the right of the people to assemble in line with the spirit of democracy, but it should be held by complying with the standard operating procedures (SOP) to curb the spread of Covid-19.

"But if they violate the SOP on Covid-19, we have to take action," added. - Bernama
