Police will be held responsible if clashes occur, say DAP leaders

The police will be held responsible if clashes take place between Bersih 5 rally participants and the red-shirts, DAP's former senator S Ramakrishnan and former Teluk Intan MP M Manogaran warn.

This is because police have the power under the Peaceful Assembly Act to order the red-shirts counter-rally to be held at another time or place but have refused to do so, Ramakrishnan and Manogaran said.
