PETALING JAYA: A crowd has gathered ahead of the planned protest over the controversial RM9bil littoral combat ship (LCS) scandal on Sunday (Aug 14).
As of 1.30pm, protestors wearing black t-shirts have started gathering in front of the Sogo shopping centre.
Weather conditions however are looking bleak with dark clouds hovering above.
The LCS protest is scheduled to begin at 2pm.
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 and was inked in 2014.
