Don't Obstruct Voters From Exercising Their Rights, Says IGP

March 04, 2008 KOTA BAHARU, March 4 (Bernama) — Police have warned all parties against obstructing the public from turning out to cast their votes on Saturday.
Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan said stern action would be taken against those caught doing so.
“Don’t make your own laws. Police will ensure that this will not happen,” he told reporters here last night.
Musa, here to observe the election campaign, was asked to comment on rumours that the opposition would attempt to stop vehicles bringing Kelantan and Terengganu voters back to their respective states, claiming that there were phantom voters.
Musa said police would not take the rumour lightly and would be ready for any eventuality.
“We have stationed about 300 policemen at entry points to the state,” he added. On the ongoing election campaign, he said the situation was under control with all political parties conforming to regulations.
