KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 23, 2015:
Kuala Lumpur Mayor Datuk Mohd Amin Nordin Abd Aziz has maintained that no approval would be given for any rally that may take place this Saturday at Petaling Street.
This was after coalition of Malay non-governmental organisation (NGO) leader Datuk Jamal Md Yunos did not reject the possibility that a riot may take place in Petaling Street this Saturday.
“There will be no approval if any rally or anything is done. But it’s up to police to act if there is a riot.”
As for Jamal’s call for the Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Ministry (KPDNKK) to act against the selling of fake goods at Petaling Street, he said if there were any operations by the ministry, Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) officers would be present.
Meanwhile, Kuala Lumpur police chief Datuk Tajuddin Isa was reported to have said that police would take action against those who took part and organised the riots.
“Police will take action to ensure peace is maintained,” The Malay Mail Online quoted him as saying.
Jamal today said that a riot could take place if authorities did not act upon the traders in Petaling Street selling fake goods.
“If the authorities don’t act, there is a 99% chance of a rally taking place and there could also be a riot there, this Saturday.
“I am the middleman between the group that gathered at Petaling Street the other day and the authorities.
“If no action is taken by Friday, I will not be responsible for whatever chaos that takes place there,” he told reporters after lodging a police report on alleged slander made against him on social media at the Ampang Jaya district police headquarters today.
