DAP’s Rasah MP Teo Kok Seong, PKR’s Seri Setia assemblyperson Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad, six students and an activist gave their statements to police today on the ‘Tangkap MO1′ rally that was held last Saturday.
They arrived at the Dang Wangi police district headquarters about 11am.
Their lawyer Melissa Sasidaran said they were investigated under Section 505 (b) of the Penal Code, which deals with public mischief, and Section 9(5) of the Peaceful Assembly Act for failure to give stakeholders a 10-day notice before holding the rally.
Melissa said the police said the investigations might be extended to include offences under the Sedition Act and Section 124B of the Penal Code, which deals with activities detrimental to parliamentary democracy.
Malaysian politicians and bigwigs need to understand that very shortly indeed they will find themselves treated like North Korean or Zimbabwean madmen when they travel anywhere abroad.
Najib already dares not travel outside of South East Asia (maybe they might greet him in Turkey, China, Russia or Turkmenistan – or places in the Middle East that want to put Malaysian soldiers offered by Najib in the front of their battle lines).
The rest of the world knows Malaysia is a place that tolerates their Prime Minister orchestrating the theft of $7billion dollars of BORROWED money, then spending it on fixing an election he would have lost and blowing the rest on diamonds, botox, movies, champagne, yachts, mansions and artwork in the West.
But, when a few students dare to peacefully and democratically exercise their right to protest about this jaw-dropping disgrace, the police come hounding THEM (AFTER the peaceful event has passed without incident) to threaten 20 years in JAIL for ‘sedition’ and “activities detrimental to Parliamentary democracy”.
Meanwhile, the opposition leader is already unjustly jailed and most of the main opposition figures are also being legally persecuted by the bossman Najib, who controls the Federal Court, towards the same fate.
Thanks to Najib, the term ‘Durian Republic’ could soon become a world pejorative term!
