Police to block German F&B event, deny giving greenlight

Police say they will not approve a permit for a German food and beverage festival in Klang, and deny they had ever given their okay for the event.
Klang Utara district police chief Mazelan Paijan said this is because the "Centro Mall German F&B Festival" will be serving alcohol.
"We will not give approval as per the instructions given by Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi recently for police to ensure that there are no alcohol festivals organised," Mazelan was quoted as saying by Bernama.

Zahid (photo) had on Sept 26 said that he had ordered police to stop the controversial Better Beer Festival in Kuala Lumpur which has since been cancelled.
Meanwhile, Mazelan said police have yet to receive any applications from German festival organisers and that any letter stating the police's approval was fake.
Yesterday, Selangor exco member Teng Chang Khim said the organisers had received a letter from the Klang Utara district police headquarters saying they had no objections to the German festival as long as it adhered to certain conditions.

Among other conditions, the event must be restricted to non-Muslims only, said Teng (photo).

The event, scheduled Oct 12 and 13, has received objections from Selangor PAS, who claimed that the event was an "alcohol festival".
Similar events at Centro Mall have been held in October over the past few years without any incident.- Mkini
