Cops to issue compound notices to organisers of Dataran Merdeka gathering

KUALA LUMPUR: The police will issue compound notices to the organisers of the protest at Dataran Merdeka that took place on Saturday (July 17), says Dang Wangi OCPD Asst Comm Mohamad Zainal Abdullah (pic).

He added that three people have been identified as the organisers.

"They will be called in in the near future and be issued compounds for illegal assembly," he said in a statement on Saturday.

Earlier, around 20 people had assembled at Dataran Merdeka with black flags and banners.

They also carried life-size dolls that were made up to look like “corpses” wrapped in white cloth.

ACP Mohamad Zainal said that at around 3pm, a police team was dispatched there to disperse the crowd.

"The crowd dispersed at 3.10pm. No incidents occurred," he said.
