Default Can't use Merdeka stadium

KUALA LUMPUR, July 6 — Bersih lamented today that the authorities are still vilifying them as an outlawed organisation while Stadium Merdeka officials are snubbing their request to use the stadium this July 9, despite being booked for a rock concert earlier.

The electoral reforms movement said the authorities should respect the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin, who met Bersih leaders yesterday, and ensure that it can hold its rally in a stadium as suggested by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

“Among the unclear reasons provided by said officer were an “internal management sports event” and “renovations” — these despite the fact that until very recently, there were plans to hold “Konsert Raksasa 2” on the 9th of July at Stadium Merdeka,” Bersih said in a statement today.

But a Stadium Merdeka official told state news agency Bernama that there was no official decision to allow Bersih to book the stadium, which it said came with conditions to prevent vandalism.

“We are also waiting for a Cabinet decision,” Bernama Online quoted the unnamed official as saying.

The movement said today it chose Stadium Merdeka to reflect the “ scale and centrality” of their issue calling for free and fair elections.

“We have decided that Stadium Merdeka is the only location that appropriately meets this criteria, and take the firm position that to demonstrate his sincerity and good faith, the Prime Minister must as a matter of honour make good on his offer to let us use an appropriate stadium immediately,” it explained.

Bersih called for a prompt decision on the rally location as it was just three days away.

“Any delay in approving the use of Stadium Merdeka can only be an unacceptable effort to further delay and frustrate our movement. We have no doubt that strong leadership by the top executive will not tolerate any procedural obstacles to a speedy approval,” it said

The movement also said it deplored the ongoing arrests, harassment, and intimidation against their supporters especially the latest arrests where the prosecutors are framing charges of promoting an illegal organisation under the Societies Act.

“We are perplexed by this continuing vilification of Bersih 2.0 by the police and the AG’s chambers. Continuing to maintain that Bersih 2.0 is an illegal organisation is a direct and disrespectful contradiction by these institutions of the understanding that was reached via the good graces of DYMM SPB YDP Agong.

“We call upon the authorities to respect the will of our nation’s monarch, and cease these actions against Bersih 2.0 with immediate effect. Any arrangement that we make with the Prime Minister must be comprehensive and take into account the actions of all the government agencies for which he is fully responsible for. Any shirking or delegation of these responsibilities is also unacceptable,” Bersih said .

It hoped that “the Prime Minister will remain true to his word and suffer no further delays whatsoever to honouring his word and respecting in full the spirit of agreements that have been made.

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

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.

Bersih 2.0 will happen at Stadium Merdeka on July 9th

by BERSIH 2.0 [OFFICIAL] on Wednesday, 06 July 2011 at 23:02

Bersih 2.0 is disappointed in the manner in which the Prime Minister and his cabinet has reneged on their offer to provide a stadium for us to hold our peaceful gathering.

As members of civil society that are committed to principles of integrity, we fully intend to abide by the advice of Tuanku DYMM SPB YDP Agong and hold our gathering in a stadium to state our demand for clean and fair elections.

We have chosen Stadium Merdeka as the best venue for this event, due to its symbolic nature and central location, and we will not for one moment be swayed from our decision to gather there peacefully.

If the Prime Minister is a man of his word, he will make the appropriate arrangements for the event to proceed peacefully at Stadium Merdeka.

Whether or not the government abides by their principles, we the Malaysian people will always uphold ours. Our determination to exercise our constitutional right to gather peacefully for a just and reasonable cause is unwavering.

Recent statements by the Deputy IGP seem to indicate that the police fully intend to take action against us if we do anything on July 9th beyond staying at home.

However, patriotic Malaysians who want nothing but the ability to choose our leaders through genuinely democratic means will never be cowered by the unjust and immoral exercise of power. Our first and foremost responsibility is to our future and our children, and we have resolved that they shall inherit a nation ruled by not by fear, but by the principles of justice.

Whatever happens between now and then, the rakyat will gather peacefully in an orderly fashion to call for clean and fair elections at Stadium Merdeka on the 9th of July at 2pm. We are coming, we will be peaceful and together, we will build a better Malaysia.

Released by
Steering Committee
Coalition for Clean and Fair Elections (BERSIH 2.0)

The members of the BERSIH 2.0 Steering Committee are:
Dato’ Ambiga Sreenevasan (Chair), Andrew Khoo, Arul Prakkash, Arumugam K., Dr Farouk Musa, Haris Ibrahim, Liau Kok Fah, Maria Chin Abdullah, Richard Y W Yeoh, Dr Subramaniam Pillay, Dato’ Dr Toh Kin Woon, Dr Wong Chin Huat, Dato’ Yeo Yang Poh dan Zaid Kamaruddin.

Putrajaya freezes bus permits for Bersih weekend

By G. Manimaran
Bahasa Malaysia Editor

July 07, 2011KUALA 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.

KUALA LUMPUR (July 7, 2011): Police today slapped a total of 91 individuals, including Bersih 2.0 chairman Datuk S. Ambiga, Perkasa president Datuk Ibrahim Ali and Umno Youth Chief Khairy Jamaluddin, with restriction orders issued by the magistrate's courts here.

The order issued yesterday under Section 98 of the Criminal Procedure Code will prevent them from being at major areas in the city tomorrow between 8am and 6pm, where the Bersih rally is scheduled to take place.

At a press conference held at the KL Contingent police headquarters today, KL Deputy CPO Datuk Amar Singh announced the orders issued against 66 Bersih 2.0 leaders and supporters, 14 from Malay-rights NGO Perkasa's Gerak Aman movement and another 11 from Umno Youth's Patriot rally.

All three movement leaders were included on the list, as well as several Pakatan Rakyat leaders, including PKR de facto head Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, DAP stalwart Lim Kit Siang and PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang.

"Police investigation has revealed that these are the key figures responsible for organising the illegal assemblies.

"With the issuance of this order, all the named individuals are forbidden from being present at the identified locations, and those who defy can be charged under Section 188 of the Penal Code which carries a maximum sentence of six months' jail and a fine," he said.

Amar said the restricted areas include:

>> Along Jalan Syed Putra, Jalan Istana, Jalan Bukit Petaling, Jalan Bellamy and areas surrounding Istana Negara;

>> Along Jalan Sultan Hishamuddin, Jalan Lembah Perdana, Jalan Chenderasari and areas surrounding the National Mosque.

"The areas around Dataran Merdeka, Central Market, Masjid Jamek and Kampung Baru are also off bounds for the named individuals," said Amar.

While the general public is not forbidden from entering the areas, Amar strongly discouraged people from attending any rallies, if they take place.

He also cautioned there will be major roadblocks and route diversions at 58 points along roads leading in and out of KL from between 12.01am tomorrow and 10pm Saturday.

Amar added that buses arriving to and departing from the Putra bus terminal tomorrow will also be diverted to the Bandar Tasik Selatan integrated terminal, while Puduraya and Jalan Pekeliling bus terminal operations will be moved to the Jalan Duta bus terminal.

Meanwhile, the Land Public Transport Commission in a statement said the final stop for buses entering KL will be changed to several LRT and Monorail stations namely – Titiwangsa, Datuk Keramat, Maluri and KL Sentral.

At a separate press conference, Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar said the organisers of the Bersih 2.0 rally will have to produce a consent letter from the management of any stadium they intend to hold their gathering at in order to apply for a police permit.

He said that police will be unable to process the permit if the organisers do not obtain the approval of the owners or management of a venue they intent to hold the rally.

He also said that the permit application will be rejected if it is applied under the name of Bersih 2.0 as the group was illegal as declared by the Registrar of Societies.

Minutes before holding a press conference at Bukit Aman at 3.45pm, Ismail met with Bersih 2.0 chairperson Ambiga.

Asked what had transpired in the meeting, Ismail said: "We invited her to discuss matters on the rally. It was a cordial discussion in good spirit but with opposing views. We suggested she hold the rally Stadium Melawati, Shah Alam but she remains adamant about having it in Stadium Merdeka."

Ismail said police will expedite the permit application from the organisers once they received it, and urged them to do so quickly.

However, he said the application must meet the requirements of the law or it will be rejected.
