Six Pakatan Rakyat leaders - two in Perak and one each in Negri Sembilan, Johor, Kuantan and Penang - have been charged in the Sessions Court of the respective states.

They are deemed to have violated the Peaceful Assembly Act 2012 (PAA) by not informing the police 10 days ahead of the 'Blackout 505' rallies organised by the coalition.
