KUALA LUMPUR: Police will take action against anyone who intentionally violates the standard operating procedure in the city.

City police chief Comm Datuk Azmi Abu Kassim said this to those who planned to take part in the #Lawan demonstration which is supposed to take place at Dataran Merdeka on Saturday.

"The country is still going through a pandemic, and we are still under the National Recovery Plan (NRP).

"I ask all parties to comply with the SOP in place under the NRP which includes no public gathering," he said when contacted on Friday (July 30).

He warned those who violated the SOP would face police action.

Comm Azmi said that they have not received any application or notice from any of the organising committee of the proposed gathering.

It was reported that police recorded the statements of 15 people who participated in the black flag convoy.

Police identified 31 vehicles and 30 to 45 participants involved in Saturday's (July 24) convoys in several parts of the country.

It was reported that several participants of the convoy have been summoned to have their statements recorded.

Activist Qyira Yusri said among those summoned were Undi18 movement compatriot Tharma Pillai and Suara Rakyat Malaysia (Suaram) programme coordinator Mohammad Alshatri.

The black flag convoy was organised by the Secretariat Solidarity Rakyat to gear up for the @Lawan rally scheduled for Saturday (July 31).

The convoys were held concurrently all over the country including Batu Pahat, Ipoh, Temerloh and Kuala Lumpur.
