Penang police said today they have not received any notification to stage a so-called solidarity rally for Anwar Ibrahim when he attends a hearing beginning at the High Court here on Monday.
Penang police chief Abdul Ghafar Rajab said the organiser of any rally should notify the police 10 days prior to the gathering.
"The police will take the appropriate action if they go ahead with the rally," he said to reporters after a visit to the North-East District Police headquarters in George Town.
Abdul Ghafar was responding to a question about billboards erected in the state inviting the people to gather in support of the former opposition leader who is serving a five-year jail sentence after being found guilty of sodomising a former political aide Mohamad Saiful Bukhari Azlan.
Abdul Ghafar said the police had dismantled three such billboards in the district of Seberang Perai Tengah.
