LAWYERS for Liberty (LFL) said the police must immediately stop any illegal investigation under Section 9(5) of the Peaceful Assembly Act (PAA) against those who participated in last Saturday’s “Save Malaysia” rally.

LFL director Zaid Malek said the rally which was held in Kuala Lumpur organised by Perikatan Nasional members did not break the law as alleged by the police as the right to assemble is guaranteed under the Federal Constitution.

On Saturday, Kuala Lumpur police chief Allaudeen Abdul Majid said the rally was not in compliance with the PAA. – September 18, 2023.
