Cops record statements of over 10 people linked to 'Save Malaysia' rally


KUALA LUMPUR: At least ten individuals have provided their statements to police in connection with the Save Malaysia rally held on Saturday (Sept 16).

When met outside the Dang Wangi police headquarters on Monday (Sept 18), Datuk Tun Faisal Ismail Aziz said he and nine others, including three lawyers, were among those who gave statements to police.

"They asked about the report I lodged as well as an explanation about the rally itself. From what I have heard, several others have also been called to provide their statements, including T-shirt vendors there on the day," he told reporters.

He said the rally on Sept 16 was peaceful without untoward incidents.

"There were no clashes with police, no property damage nor any vehicles overturned," he said.

He added that the Peaceful Assembly Act allows for the public to gather to have their voices heard.
