KUALA LUMPUR: Two persons have yet to cooperate with the police by giving their statements in connection with the Sept 16 Save Malaysia rally.

Kuala Lumpur police chief Comm Datuk Allaudeen Abdul Majid said the two failed to show up to have their statements recorded on Wednesday (Sept 20).

"So far, we have recorded the statements of 29 people in connection with the investigation of the rally. However, two individuals failed to show up yesterday.

"We will issue a 111 notice under the Criminal Procedure Code (CPC) and it is our last (resort).

"We urge those involved to come forward so that the probe can be completed and we can send the investigation paper to the Attorney General's Chambers," he told reporters on Thursday (Sept 21).

"We gave the two individuals a date (Wednesday) to come forward. As they failed to show up, we will issue the notice and take necessary action," he added.

Section 111 of the CPC gives police the power to call in an individual as a witness to an investigation; if a person refuses to show up, the matter can be reported to a Magistrate who may then issue a warrant to secure their attendance.
