Several police reports have been made against the opposition lawmakers who gathered and protested at Dataran Merdeka and marched to the parliament yesterday demanding PM Muhyiddin to resign.

The NGOs who lodged reports demanded the police and Home Minister Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin to take immediate and stern action against the opposition MPs, stressing that they defied SOP and their action could create unrest in the society.

Surplus Pulau Pinang chairman  Mohd Sophian (Mohd Zain) said Malaysia is still under total lockdown, and as such, any form of assembly or protest on the road is still not allowed.

He added that, clearly, the opposition MPs did not respect and comply with  the standard operating procedures (SOP) which was imposed by the government to curb the spread of coronavirus to the community.

He also pointed out that the protesters did not only bring the opposition MPs to the street but also forced the police, many reporters and public to attend their demonstration on the street, which created unnecessary panic.

 There was no arrest and no compounds issued yesterday at the large gathering, Sophian said, adding if ordinary people did not follow the SOP  they would be arrested and issued with compounds.
