KUALA LUMPUR, (May 21) — Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and PKR deputy president Azmin Ali will be the first persons to be charged tomorrow under the Peaceful Assembly Act less than a month after the new law aimed at allowing public gatherings “in accordance with international norms” was enforced.

The PKR de facto leader and the Gombak MP will be charged with participating in an illegal street protest during the April 28 Bersih rally.

Opposition Leader Anwar and Azmin were accused of leading the breach of a barricade at the historic square after video clips showed the two exchanging hand signals just seconds before the barrier was pushed aside by Rasah PKR deputy chief R. Thangam. – TMI
