“The roads will be closed from 6am onwards on Saturday (Dec 8).

“The rally participants are only allowed to converge at Jalan Raja in front of Dataran Merdeka,” he told a press conference yesterday.

He also advises the people to abide by the Peaceful Assembly Act 2012.

“Use public transportation to avoid traffic congestion. Don’t cause provocation and please assemble peacefully,” he said.

He also warns rally goers not to carry weapons or bring children along to the rally.

“Obey all orders from police personnel on duty on that day.

“Sufficient police personnel will be deployed to ensure the rally goes smoothly.

“We will play our part in facilitating the rally but the participants must cooperate and not cause trouble.

“Avoid spreading unfounded news or rumours that can jeopardise public order,” Comm Mazlan was quoted saying.
