Eight Hindraf, HRP leaders to be charged

Eight leaders of the banned Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) and the Human Rights Party (HRP), who were detained for taking part in an unlawful assembly yesterday, are expected to be brought before court this Friday to be charged.

Kuala Lumpur police chief Datuk Zulkifli Abdullah said they had been released on police bail yesterday.

The police were in the process of completing investigations before submitting the report to the Deputy Public Prosecutors office, he told reporters after a meeting between the police and the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) here today.

Zulkifli said 14 people were also detained yesterday after they refused to disperse after being told to do so at an unlawful gathering in front of the Jinjang district police station.

“They were released on police bail this afternoon,” he added.

Yesterday, 109 people, including Hindraf leader P. Uthayakumar, were detained for staging a demonstration to protest the novel “Interlok”.

On the joint meeting between the police and DBKL, Zulkifli said cooperation between the police and DBKL would be enhanced to maintain public order and safety in the city.

“Under a special project, the police and DBKL have identified areas with a high crime rate or hot spot areas with the installation of close-circuit television (CCTV) cameras,” he added.

Meanwhile, Kuala Lumpur Mayor Datuk Seri Ahmad Fuad Ismail said DBKL would be installing more CCTV cameras in the city. — Bernama
