KUALA LUMPUR: Police will be calling protesters of the "Mana Kapal LCS" protest for their statements soon.
Dang Wangi OCPD Asst Comm Noor Dellhan Yahaya, in a statement, said that around 60 people attended the rally, including those from political parties and NGOs.
"The police have identified 13 people to record their statements. All will be called to the district police headquarters to have their statements recorded soon," he said.
Earlier Sunday (Aug 14), protesters gathered in front of the Sogo shopping centre to protest the littoral combat ship (LCS) scandal.
The Public Accounts Committee (PAC) report presented to Parliament on Aug 4 said some RM1.4bil in government allocation for the LCS project was used for other purposes, including cost overruns.
The two-year probe by PAC also revealed that the RM9bil project was done through direct negotiations with Boustead Naval Shipyard Sdn Bhd (BNS) and was inked in 2014.
BNS chief executive officer Capt (R) Azhar Jumaat previously said five of the LCS were being built concurrently, with the first ship at about 60% completion, followed by the second at 48%, third (43%), fourth (36%) and fifth (22%).
The sixth ship, he said, has yet to start construction.
