Hold anti-kleptocracy rally in stadium instead, IGP tells organiser
The police have asked the organiser of Saturday's anti-kleptocracy rally to relocate the event to the Kelana Jaya stadium instead of Padang Timur.
Inspector-general of police Mohamad Fuzi Harun said four reports have been received from residents regarding the plan to hold the rally at Padang Timur.
"We have decided not to give the green light... We have received several reports from the local residents because traffic in the area would affect them," Fuzi told reporters in Kuala Lumpur.
The police chief also pointed out that Padang Timur can only accommodate 10,000 people whereas the organiser is predicting a 100,000-strong turnout...
