KL cops deny rejecting notices for women's march, say submission incomplete


KUALA LUMPUR: Police have denied rejecting a notice for a rally four times as claimed by Women's March Malaysia (WMMY).

City police chief Comm Datuk Allaudeen Abdul Majid said the organiser only submitted a notice on Friday (March 1) to the Dang Wangi police headquarters but had failed to complete all 14 questions listed in the form.

"We checked and found that we did not receive four as claimed. However, police have called up the organiser to get the complete answers.

"We have never barred any rally to be held because it is the right of the people but a notice must be submitted so that police have all the information," he told reporters after attending the back to school aid programme at the KL police headquarters on Tuesday (March 5).

Comm Allaudeen said the police would deploy sufficient personnel to ensure the safety and security of those involved despite the organiser's failure to complete the form.

"KL police will always ensure the safety and security of the public and we don't want any rally to disrupt others," he said.

Action can be taken under the Peaceful Assembly Act 2012 for any offence committed during a rally, he said.

Based on the form submitted to police on March 1, the organiser had only submitted answers to nine of the 14 required questions.
