KUALA LUMPUR: PKR vice-president Rafizi Ramli intended to lodge a police report against 1MDB but was instead arrested over the #Kitalawan rally.

City CID chief Senior Asst Comm Zainuddin Ahmad said Rafizi was arrested under Section 9(5) of the Peaceful Assembly Act 2012 and Section 143 of the Penal Code.

Rafizi had arrived at the Dang Wangi police station at about 3.15pm to lodge the report over the 1MDB controversy and speak to reporters later.

He is the fourth person detained over Saturday's rally after Kelana Jaya PKR youth chief Saifullah Zulkifli, PKR Youth chief Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad and Jingga 13 head coordinator Fariz Musa.
