KUALA LUMPUR: Organisers and participants of the Walk for Judicial Independence by the Malaysian Bar will be called in by the police next week.

Dang Wangi OCPD Asst Comm Noor Dellhan Yahaya confirmed the matter when contacted Saturday (June 18).

"They will be called to give their statements next week. All participants that were present will be called," he said.

On Friday (June 17), the Walk For Judicial Independence by the Malaysian Bar ended without any protest march by lawyers to Parliament after the police did not allow it.

There was a brief tense moment when police personnel formed a human chain to disallow some lawyers from attempting to leave the area.

A police light strike force unit was also called in to provide further security after several lawyers attempted to leave the area but were denied.
