PETALING JAYA, 11 Jan – Police ordered the participants of the 14th Anti-ISA Vigil at MBPJ to disperse minutes after the event had started on the grounds that they had no permit.

The vigil began at around 8.15pm but about five minutes later the OCPD of PJ ordered the participants to disperse. There were over 200 police personnel, riot police and plain clothes personnel. Three FRU trucks were parked by the side of Civic Hall.

“The authorities care a lot for the safety of the rakyat,” reports Rakyat@work, tongue in cheek. “They sent more than two police personnel for every vigil participant.”

Aloysius Francis Pinto will request MBPJ, MPs and ADUNs and the Selangor State government for their response. “Why they did not arrange for our security from intruders? We were there legally with the permission of the Selangor Government authorities, based on our aims and objectives. Why no protection for Anak Bangsa Malaysia from Selangor and elsewhere, when we are standing for the ANTI-ISA position taken by the Selangor Pakatan State Government and the Wakil-wakil Rakyat? Some answers must come forth. For evil to succeed, it is enough the good do nothing.”

In addition to that, Haris Ibrahim will be writing to the Dato Bandar of PJ to lodge a protest about the incident and to ask him to take this matter up with the police so that there is no repeat of the incident this coming Sunday.

Haris will  forward a copy of the letter to the MB of Selangor including all the exco members and ask their attendance this coming Sunday to show solidarity with the rakyat.

Stand up and be counted in your own special way for the sake of all Malaysians and your children too. If we don’t care about the state of our society, it simply means we don’t care about ourselves.

See you this Sunday, 8.00pm at MBPJ!

    The Red Book – Police and Your Basic Rights

    In 2006, The Malaysian Bar Council took the initiative to launch a publication titled “The Red Book – Police and Your Basic Rights”.

    The Red Book contains a lot of information that you will find useful if you have to deal with the police (plain clothes or uniformed).

    For example, the book contains information on your rights and what you can do and cannot do if/when you are stopped, arrested or questioned by the police.

    Other useful information in the book include the colour schemes of police authority cards (blue is inspector or above, yellow below, white reserve and red suspended) and the phone numbers of Legal Aid Centres (LAC) that you can call if you need a lawyer.

    CLICK HERE to download an English or BM version of The Red Book from the Malaysian Bar Council website:

    You can read more about The Red Book launch here:
