Bernama  |  Published:  |  Modified:

Police will be calling in the organisers of a protest held outside the Parliament building today for holding it without a permit.

Dang Wangi district police chief Shaharuddin Abdullah said police had already identified the organisers and would call them in soon.

“Police will conduct an investigation because the organisers contravened the Peaceful Assembly Act 2012," he told reporters in Kuala Lumpur today.

Shaharuddin said it was estimated that more than 300 people took part in the march, which was held at the National Monument and outside the Parliament building.

He added that nothing untoward happened during the protest which began at 8am, and although there were some minor incidents, they were brought under control by the 400 police personnel stationed there, including the Federal Reserve Unit.

The organisers, said to be members of Bersih, handed in a memorandum to protest the proposed redelineation of electoral boundaries.

Bersih acting chairperson Shahrul Aman Mohd Saari handed the memorandum to a representative of Dewan Rakyat speaker Pandikar Amin Mulia outside the gates of the Parliament building.
