May 1 anti-GST rally illegal, say cops

KUALA LUMPUR: Police have labelled the proposed May 1 anti-GST rally as illegal.

Dang Wangi OCPD Asst Comm Zainuddin Ahmad said that organisers of the rally had submitted the mandatory 10-day notice for the rally, but had failed to get permission to use Dataran Merdeka, the planned venue of the rally.

"They needed to meet both requirements before the 10-day deadline, which they did not, so that gathering is illegal.

"We urge the public not to attend it," he said.
