IPOH, 5 Feb 2009: No police permit was issued for a rally to be held at Stadium Perak tonight.
As such, Perak police chief Datuk Zulkefli Abdullah said, those found organising the rally would face the wrath of the law.
Nevertheless, hundreds of policemen would be stationed at the stadium to ensure the rally did not take off, he told Bernama.
Zulkefli was commenting on messages being distributed via Short Messaging Service (SMS) on a rally to be held at the stadium tonight.
He said over 100 members of the Federal Reserve Unit would also be stationed at the state administration centre in Bangunan Perak Darul Ridzuan where the Office of Perak Menteri Besar was located, to prevent untoward incidents.
So far, he said the situation in the state was under control.
On a rumour that stones were hurled at the house of Jelapang state assemblyperson Hee Yit Foong in Tasek today, Zulkefli said the police had not received any report. — Bernama
