AMPANG JAYA, Oct 20, 2015:
“Save Selangor” assembly will continue again at the end of this month and this time around, it will be held in Subang, says Malay non-governmental organisations (NGO) coalition leader Datuk Jamal Md Yunos.
Jamal in announcing the programme, challenged the Selangor state government which he claimed had failed to resolve various problems faced by its people, including the recent outbreak of typhoid said to be caused by unhygienic water.
“We will continue to fight for the issues faced by the people of Selangor such as dengue which has recorded 22,000 cases so far, and water issues that have caused typhoid.”
Jamal said that he would work on obtaining permission for the gathering next week, starting with the police and Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ).
“We understand that police permission will given if we can obtain MPSJ approval. If they don’t allow for the assembly to take place, police too wouldn’t allow it.
“We will follow the procedures required under the Peaceful Assembly Act 2012,” said Jamal at a Press conference here today.
Jamal and seven other NGO and Umno leaders were called in to Ampang Jaya police station today for investigation over last Sunday’s gathering which was held illegally.
Besides Jamal, the other six called in were Umno Youth Exco member Armand Azhar, Pandan Umno division chief Datuk Hanif Roslan, Gerakan Amal Malaysia chairman Mohamad Abu Bakar, former Selangor PAS leader Norman Toha, Umno Ampang division chief Datuk Ismail Kijo, and Umno Ampang youth chief Mohd Nizam Shith.
They arrived at the station around 12.30pm, surrounded by their supporters.
