KUALA TERENGGANU, Nov 12 (Bernama) — Terengganu police today warned the people against attending a gathering to be organised purportedly by an opposition political party in Batu Buruk tomorrow night.
State police chief Datuk Ayub Yaakob said police had not issued any permit for the gathering and added that it would be an illegal assembly and those attending it would be committing an offence.
He said Terengganu police had received an application to hold a gathering and “ceramah” (talk) at Batu Buruk tomorrow night.
“After looking into all the aspects, the police find the place unsuitable as a venue for the gathering and ceramah,” he told reporters.
He said the police had invited the organiser for a discussion but was made to understand that the organiser was adamant about going ahead with the gathering, which was expected to be attended by Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) advisor Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, PAS vice-president Mohamad Sabu and the leaders of several non-governmental organisations (NGOs).
