    Cops say roadblocks necessary for safety

    KUALA LUMPUR, July 6 — Many streets in the capital are still expected to be clogged by roadblocks until Saturday as a precautionary measure by the police to prevent violence during Bersih 2.0’s rally.

    Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar urged the public today to understand the necessity of the roadblocks in certain areas and called for patience.

    He pointed out that the discovery of several weapons caches along with Bersih paraphernalia over the past few days had placed the police on high alert to ensure that violence would not break out this Saturday.

    “We have no more new discoveries but the police are ready and on the lookout. We are keeping close ties with the local communities as well.

    “This is why we have to set up roadblocks ... so we can act quickly. We cannot just accept in totality the promises by Bersih’s organisers that everything will run smoothly because they can say it but this event involves a lot of people,” he told a press conference at the Bukit Aman police headquarters here today.

    The now-outlawed Bersih 2.0 coalition is scheduled to hold a stadium rally this Saturday to call for free and fair elections.

    Despite its pledges that the gathering would be peaceful, the police recently discovered several weapon caches at the Sogo shopping complex and in Gombak in what police have described as “a preparatory move” by Bersih supporters ahead of the July 9 rally.

    The weapons included machetes, a butcher’s knife, a handsaw, Molotov cocktails, metal pipes and 40 firecrackers. Surgical masks and four Bersih T-shirts were also found.

    But Bersih 2.0 organisers today denied the weapons link to their rally, claiming it was a “simplistic” deduction by the police.

    They called on the cops to investigate the case professionally and not jump to quick conclusions simply because the stash was found along with four Bersih T-shirts. It has also been speculated that the weapons were likely planted by agent provocateurs determined to turn Saturday’s rally violent.

    In response, Khalid told Bersih leaders not to speculate on the matter and gave his assurance that the police are doing their jobs.

    “We have some leads and we are investigating still. But do not be too quick to accuse others. The fact that we have now is that the items were found and we must take note of them,” he said.

    Khalid also expressed concern at the spread of an SMS informing the public that a march would still proceed this Saturday, despite an agreement from all parties to hold their rallies indoors.

    “We want to remind everyone that we will not allow any march ... if there are those who are stubborn enough to hold them, we will take action,” he warned.

    He said the police would still proceed with its roadblocks, despite receiving scores of complaints from the public today, but noted that they would only be set up where needed.

    “We will monitor hourly the need for us to set up these blocks,” he said, adding that orders have also been given to state and district police to reduce the number of roadblocks.

    Putrajaya freezes bus permits for Bersih weekend

    By G. Manimaran
    Bahasa Malaysia Editor
    July 07, 2011

    KUALA LUMPUR, July 7 — Putrajaya has frozen temporary bus permits for travel across the peninsula to Kuala Lumpur, in what is seen as an effort to limit the turnout for Saturday’s Bersih rally.

    Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) chairman Tan Sri Syed Hamid Albar confirmed the directive is effective tomorrow, saying the commission did not want traffic congestion in the capital city.

    “We don’t want to add to the congestion in the city, and are taking precautionary measures,” he told The Malaysian Insider this morning.

    The former Home Minister added that SPAD did not see the need for temporary permits as there were no festive occasions or school holidays that would require more buses entering the city.

    But he added that normal express bus and train services including the city’s light rail transit (LRT) would continue as usual.

    “The LRT will run as usual without interruptions, and also normal bus services . . . no change, it will carry on as usual,” Syed Hamid said. “I don’t foresee any problems.”

    Asked if action would be taken if the SPAD directive was ignored, he expressed confidence that the bus operators were responsible and would heed the instruction, adding he just wanted to tell the public to use regular bus services to the Klang Valley.

    The Road Transport Department (RTD) confirmed the directive had been issued by SPAD, which has taken over the regulation of temporary permits from RTD for buses for students and factory workers.

    RTD director-general Datuk Solah Mat Hassan told The Malaysian Insider that SPAD had notified the department to take action against any such buses operating from today to Saturday.

    “As SPAD has made the decision, RTD and police can take action on any buses carrying passengers without temporary permits,” he said, confirming that the decision applied nationwide. “We can stop and impound the buses.”

    He added that temporary permits would usually be issued a week in advance.

    Bus and city LRT services were affected in 2009 during demonstrations protesting the use of the Internal Security Act 1960, which allows for detentions without trial.

    The government’s latest action came as the mercury had risen over a planned Bersih street rally after Umno Youth and Perkasa pledged to hold counter-rallies.

    A government clampdown over the past week that led to the arrest of hundreds of Bersih supporters only resulted in defiance from the electoral reform movement and Pakatan Rakyat (PR) leaders, who have strongly backed the march as it seeks to build momentum ahead of a general election expected within the year.

    The opposition coalition continues to insist that up to 300,000 will attend the rally, despite Bersih accepting a government offer to move the July 9 street march to a stadium.

    The offer from Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak on Monday came after the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin, stepped in to diffuse tension on Sunday by asking the government and Bersih to come to the negotiation table.

    Despite Bersih’s acceptance of Najib’s offer, authorities are still insisting that the coalition of 62 NGOs apply for a police permit to hold its event.

    However, Information Minister Datuk Seri Rais Yatim announced last night that the government would not accept any application to hold the Bersih rally in Kuala Lumpur as it was an outlawed organisation.

    Bersih has vowed to carry on, and has told its supporters to gather in the historic Stadium Merdeka this Saturday.

    This is the second such rally organised by Bersih. Fifty thousand people took to the streets in 2007 in Kuala Lumpur before they were dispersed by riot police using water cannons and tear gas.

    The event has been partly credited for PR’s record gains in Election 2008, when the opposition coalition was swept to power in five states, and won 82 federal parliamentary seats.

    Najib endorses silat groups despite their threat to Bersih

    By Boo Su-Lyn July 07, 2011
    KUALA LUMPUR, July 7 — Datuk Seri Najib Razak has described silat and other self-defence exponents as the third line of defence in the country, including a group that has threatened to wage war against electoral reforms movement Bersih 2.0.

    The Pertubuhan Seni Silat Lincah Malaysia (PSSLM) had challenged Bersih for its refusal to abandon a planned rally on July 9 to call for free and fair elections.
    “I believe if there are evil enemies who want to attack the country from without and within, ‘anak-anak lincah’ will rise to fight them,” said Najib in a fiery speech last night.

    “But tonight, we do not gather to fight,” added the prime minister. “We do not gather to wield the keris (dagger). We gather for the loyalty and unity of our country.”

    Najib pointed out that there were non-Malays at the event last night, although silat was a Malay martial art.

    “We do not fight the non-Malays. We embrace them as fellow citizens,” said Najib.

    PSSLM Mahaguru (grandmaster) Tan Sri Omardin Mauju said last month that silat exponents were Malaysia’s third line of defence after the police and the army.

    In his threat to Bersih, Omardin said: “We maintain our stand to go to ‘war’ if they still want to proceed with this illegal rally. If it happens, I cannot guarantee I can control the emotions of my members because they have been taught to act when faced with opposition.”

    Police have locked down the capital city and asked residents to bear with the inconveniences as they are looking for weapons that have allegedly been stashed away by unknown people.

    Despite a royal audience and Najib’s earlier assurance that the Bersih rally could be held in a stadium, the police have told polls watchdog Bersih to apply for a permit for the event.

    Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar also warned that police would arrest people wearing Bersih T-shirts or found to have pro-Bersih materials as the organization was still considered illegal.

    Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin stepped in on Sunday to defuse tension over the clampdown by advising the Najib administration and Bersih 2.0 to hold consultations over the issue of free and fair elections.

    It is always wise to remember "Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel!"

    Non-Malays will back silat exponents to fight traitors, says grandmaster

    By Boo Su-Lyn July 07, 2011
    KUALA LUMPUR, July 7 — A silat grandmaster expects non-Malays to join ranks with practitioners of the Malay martial art to battle “traitors” of the country.

    Pertubuhan Seni Silat Lincah Malaysia (PSSLM) Mahaguru (grandmaster) Tan Sri Omardin Mauju said yesterday that silat exponents would not allow street demonstrations that disturbed public order.

    “We will rise and oppose these traitors,” Omardin said at PSSLM’s 50th anniversary last night. “Not only the Malays, but the children of 1 Malaysia and other races will also be with us.

    “We’re ready to die,” he added, seated in a wheelchair as he delivered his speech.

    Omardin recently threatened to “wage war” against Bersih activists, should their rally calling for electoral reforms proceeded this Saturday.

    Bersih 2.0 on Tuesday decided to gather at a stadium instead of demonstrating on the streets of Kuala Lumpur, after its leaders met the Yang di-Pertuan Agong.

    Omardin pointed out yesterday that there were non-Malays in his association.

    A few Chinese and Indians could be seen at the gathering dressed in black, instead of the traditional Malay costume worn by most of the more than 100 PSSLM members present.

    “This is an extraordinary success that we have never witnessed, in line with the 1 Malaysia concept,” said Omardin, referring to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s brainchild.

    Omardin recently referred to silat exponents as the third line of defence of the country. Najib repeated this yesterday, stressing that other practitioners of self-defence were also part of the line-up.

    Despite Bersih’s audience with the king, and Najib’s earlier assurance that the Bersih rally could be held in a stadium, the police have told the polls watchdog to apply for a permit for the event.

    Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar also warned that police would arrest people wearing Bersih T-shirts or found to have pro-Bersih materials as the organization was still considered illegal.

    Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin stepped in on Sunday to defuse tension over the clampdown by advising the Najib administration and Bersih 2.0 to hold consultations over the issue of free and fair elections.

    Army's simulation exercise: 'Disperse, or we'll shoot'

    Jul 6, 11 3:02pm
    10 friends can read this story for free

    The authorities have stepped up their threats against those intending to participate in assemblies or demonstrations by showcasing the kind of treatment that would be meted out to those violating the ban on 'illegal' rallies.


    Among the banners held up during a simulation exercise on crowd control yesterday between the Royal Malay Regiment and Federal Reserve Unit (FRU), were two conspicuous ones warning that participants will be shot if a dispersal order is not heeded.

    'Bersurailah kamu kalau tidak kami tembak' ('Disperse. If not, we'll shoot') reads the banners held by some of the 120 members of the Royal Malay Regiment's the 25th battalion during the joint-demonstration with 120 members of the FRU.

    The police Army Unit and Air Wing also took part in the simulation exercise at the Sungai Besi camp, which Utusan Malaysia said showcased the police and army forces' capabilities in handling any eventuality, including illegal demonstrations.

    Below the banner's stern message was a transliteration of the same phrase in the 'Jawi' script as well as translations in Tamil and Chinese.


    The police are ready to cooperate with the Malaysian Armed Forces in controlling participants at the Bersih 2.0 'illegal' rally scheduled for Saturday, Bukit Aman internal security and public order director Salleh Mat Rashid had been reported as saying yesterday.

    "We'll see how it goes. If necessary, we will seek (the army's) help to maintain public order," he told reporters.

    Salleh however denied that the joint demonstration exercise had anything to do with the rally planned by the coalition for clean and fair elections.


    "We are holding this merely to celebrate and show our appreciation for the Prime Minister's Innovation Award 2011, which we received recently," Salleh said.

    There have been weeks of heightened tensions between Bersih 2.0 and its critics Umno Youth and Perkasa.

    About 200 people have been arrested for publicly displaying support for the rally planned for Saturday.

    Yesterday, Bersih 2.0 agreed to holding its gathering at a stadium instead of on the streets of Kuala Lumpur.


    Bersih chairperson Ambiga Sreenevasan today announced that the coalition has chosen Stadium Merdeka as the venue for the rally.

    The application was, however, rejected by the stadium authorities today.

    The crackdown on Bersih supporters has continued unabated, with two PKR activists in Negri Sembilan arrested yesterday for possession of paraphernalia related to the rally.


    Last night, a legal briefing for a group of Subang PAS and PKR members was thwarted when police cordoned off a hall in Kota Damansara, Petaling Jaya.

    According to lawyer Farhana Abdul Halim, the Subang PKR division had invited her group - Lawyers for Liberty - to conduct a briefing on the rights of citizens upon arrest.

    She said that about 50 police personnel had stopped party members from entering the premises on the basis that a permit was required to hold the event.

    YES, I totally agree with Steven Lau.

    This is very inconsiderate and irresponsible of the police. I left my house in USJ 6 at 7:20 am and at 8:30 am I am still at Summit. There was no checks at all. All they did was stand there and 1 policeman holding a file and close the road from 3 lanes to 1 lane.

    After all said and done - what can we RAKYAT do? They are the LAW. We, the RAKYAT just have to suffer in silence. If we lose our jobs, if we get screwed by our bosses, if our business meetings go bad - so what - it is not their problem.

    What a fantastic job by the police, don't you think?

    Of all the good work and praises given, they end up doing this? What was the purpose of the road block for?

    Not only there (at Summit), a road block was also set up at the KENTUCKY EXIT leading out to the Federal Highway. i left house at 6.50am and i reach office in KL at 9.25am.
    Missed an important meeting. I guess as every motorist passes the roadblock has a swear word for the police. Let's hope there won't be one every morning until the 9/7/11. I sincerely wanna respect and appreciate PDRM for their service to therakyat BUT this morning's action really turn the table around.

    Dear All,

    Police do not set up roadblocks for the sake of setting up one. Definitely there is a reason for the roadblock. If all humans behave well and in a civil manner, there will not be any roadblocks.

    To set a roadblock, one officer has to be relieved of his daily duties and all the policemen who man the roadblocks too would have to leave their regular duty for the duration of the roadblock. This will add pressure on them to finish their assignments before going home for the day. So don’t think that police men like to set-up roadblocks.

    Moreover, to set-up a roadblock, there are rules and regulations which have to be adhered too. The individual police man has no authority to set up a roadblock as he wishes.

    Lastly if the police had set-up a roadblock and were not stopping everybody, it is most probably because they are looking for a particular person (usually a criminal who is wanted by the police for a serious crime). The crime could have just occurred and the criminal was seen headed in that particular direction. So Bro., don’t get too upset as the police are only trying to keep us safe. TQ

    Best Regards,

    Ratna Raj
    Safety & Security Manager

    Dear DSP Raj,

    Would appreciate a response from you on Mr Steven Lau's mail below on the road block set up by the police this morning at the Summit Shopping Centre traffic light junction.

    "Why do the police set up a road block in the morning rush hour? Why can't they do it after 10am? Why create problem for ppl going to work? Why they set up road block without stopping any cars to check? Why set up one for the sake of setting up one? What do they think they will achieve by doing this? Why can't they think and plan? Why make life miserable for the RAKYAT? Why close 3 lanes and make available only one for traffic to go thru?

    Sent from Steven's iPhone"

    Why must motorists be subjected to such inconvenience during the morning rush hour? Is it because of the Bersih paranoia? After all the Agong has advised the organizers to hold the rally in a stadium and to which they have graciously agreed. So what's the fuss all about? Aren't the police supposed to serve the rakyat?

    Thank you.

    BC Teoh

    Mr. Steven Lau 's frustration was also witnessed by me as I too was in the jam this morning.

    I am sure PDRM can be more systematic than inconveniencing innocent motorists who needed to go work and be on time, that is a bread and butter issue for many .

    PDRM should look at the routes they block , in this case , traffic coming down from the ramp was not much affected but those on the inner lanes were suffocated , traffic management is the responsibility of the police , so is security, doing it at whims and fancies , is not a very professional thing to do.

    On behalf of the hundreds who got stuck in this jam, we hope PDRM will use methods that are effective for their objectives and at same, not inconvenience the innocent motorist on the street.

    Selamat 1 MALAYSIA

    UMNO will threaten, bully, lie and cheat to prevent the rally from taking place but they will not address the issue of "Clean & Fair Elections!" Therefore the conclusion you can safely arrive at is that UMNO does not want "Clean and Fair Elections!" Remember that when you are caught in a traffic jam created by the Police!

    Police to lockdown Kuala Lumpur from 12.01am

    Police will close off several main roads leading into the Kuala Lumpur city centre from midnight tonight, ahead of the much-anticipated Bersih 2.0 rally for free-and-fair elections slated for 2pm on Saturday at the Stadium Merdeka.

    “All are urged to cooperate by adhering to traffic rules and directives from traffic officers on duty,” city police announced on their Facebook page.

    Bersih has vowed to proceed despite being denied a permit and a police warning that participants would be detained.

    Affected roads

    According to the police, many roads in and around locations suspected to be assembly points for Bersih supporters are on the list, including Dataran Merdeka, Sogo complex, Masjid Jamek and Bukit Bintang.

    It advised those who did not have pressing business in the city centre against entering the area to avoid traffic congestion.

    The blockades and diversions are scheduled to come into force at 12.01am, and will affect entry points along the entire stretch of Jalan Syed Putra, Jalan Istana, Jalan Bukit Petaling, Jalan Bellamy and the area surrounding Istana Negara.

    Also affected would be the area surrounding the National Mosque in the Lake Gardens vicinity, covering the entire stretch of Jalan Sultan Hishammuddin, Jalan Lembah Perdana and Jalan Chenderasari.



    In the city centre, blockades will be set up around Dataran Merdeka, Pasar Seni, Masjid Jamek, Dataran DBKL, Kompleks Sogo, Maju Junction, Masjid Kampung Baru, Jalan Kinabalu, Jalan Kuching, Jalan Sultan Ismail, Jalan Raja Laut, Jalan Sri Amar, Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman, Jalan Haji Taib, Jalan Raja Muda Musa, Jalan Raja Bot, Jalan Raja Abdullah, Jalan Dang Wangi, Jalan Munshi Abdullah, Jalan Gereja, Jalan Raja Chulan, Jalan Tun Perak, Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Loke, Jalan Sultan Mahmud and all nearby areas.

    Acting city police chief Amar Singh also said three major bus terminals - Puduraya, Putra and Pekeliling - would also be shut down, and bus routes diverted around Kuala Lumpur for 22 hours starting midnight.

    Riot police trucks and military personnel were seen throughout Kuala Lumpur today.

    On Saturday

    Indeed, on July 9, Malaysia will come under intense world attention as Bersih attempts to hold a peaceful assembly amid aggressive opposition by the Najib administration and extremist groups linked to him like Perkasa.

    Bersih had wanted to walk to the Palace to deliver a memorandum of 8 electoral reforms to the King, urging him to make the BN government implement these before the next general election.

    Upon the King's request, Bersih agreed to take its march indoors to a stadium, but Prime Minister Najib Razak reneged on his word although he had initially agreed and promised them a stadium of their choice to rally in.

    As a result, Bersih decided it would abide with the King's wishes and not march to the Palace. However, it would still rally at Stadium Merdeka even without the police permit.
