'Yes, yes, yes', cops will act against Umno Youth

Umno Youth, who had gathered without a permit in front of the PKR headquarters late on Monday, will have to face the music, said the home minister.

NONEAsked specifically if police would act on this today, Hishammuddin Hussein said: "Yes, yes, yes."

He said no one would get special treatment and that the government has made this stand clear.

"I've already told (the police) to treat Pemuda (Umno Youth) the same. Nobody is above the law," Hishammuddin added.

'Patriot' link

On Monday night, about 300 youths, some on motorcycles and carrying Umno flags, surrounded the PKR headquarters in Tropicana, Petaling Jaya.

The youths allegedly threatened to burn down the building, which is in the same row as a police station.

According to PKR secretary-general Saifuddin Nasution, who rushed to scene at 11pm, the youths were also wearing Patriot T-shirts.

Umno Youth has plans to hold its own rally on July 9 - dubbed the Patriot rally - to defy Bersih 2.0's call for electoral reform.

The Election Commission (EC) has offered to meet Bersih 2.0 as long as it calls off the demonstration, but the offer has been rejected.

Bersih 2.0 said it has tried to engage the EC, but to no avail, over the past four years. - Malaysiakini
