KUALA LUMPUR: Police have identified 25 persons of interest at the Save Malaysia rally who will be called in to have their statements recorded.

“As of now, 25 people have been identified. At the same time, other individuals are also being looked into to be called to the Dang Wangi police headquarters for their statements to be recorded in the near future,” said Dang Wangi OCPD Asst Comm Noor Dellhan Yahaya.

“The investigation paper is being completed and will be forwarded to the deputy public prosecutor for further action,” he said in a statement yesterday.

It is known that several of the event organisers will be giving their statements today.

When contacted, Muafakat Nasional supreme council member Datuk Tun Faisal Ismail Aziz confirmed that he has been called to give his statement.

“A total of 20 people have been called to give their statements, including myself,” he said.

He added that he and several others would be giving their statements at 10am at the Dang Wangi police headquarters today.

Taman Medan state assemblyman Dr Afif Bahardin also confirmed in a post on social media platform X (formerly known as Twitter) that he would also be giving his statement to the police today.

“I will be present at the Dang Wangi police headquarters at noon tomorrow (Monday) to have my statement recorded,” Dr Afif said.

The gathering on Saturday saw hundreds march in Kuala Lumpur to protest the discharge not amounting to an acquittal (DNAA) granted in Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi’s graft case.

At a press conference on Saturday, Kuala Lumpur police chief Comm Datuk Allaudeen Abdul Majid said that the rally failed to comply with the provisions of the Peaceful Assembly Act and that police had identified all persons of interest in connection with the rally.
