A month later, cops still grilling MPs on Bersih 5

Filed under: Politics — Hornbill Unleashed @ 8:01 AM

Three PKR MPs were called in for questioning today at the Sentul district police station on the Bersih 5 rally, which took place almost one month ago.

The three are Pandan MP Rafizi Ramli, Lembah Pantai MP Nurul Izzah Anwar and Sungai Petani MP Johari Abdul. It is believed that they are being investigated under the Sedition Act 1948 and Section 4(2)(b) of the Peaceful Assembly Act 2012.

Johari said they were asked many questions on Bersih 5, but all three replied to most of the questions that they would only answer them in court.

“There were a lot of questions, but we chose to reply in court,” he said when met by reporters.

Johari said he was not certain if the three would be facing charges.

Meanwhile, Rafizi urged attorney-general Mohamed Apandi Ali to reconsider pursuing opposition figures and activists in view of public support for Bersih 5.

On Nov 19, some 40,000 people rallied during Bersih 5 to demand for Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s resignation over the 1MDB scandal, clean elections and other reforms.

Although there were no arrests at the rally proper, several opposition and NGO figures were either arrested or hauled up for questioning before and after the rally.
