The police have called the organiser of the 19th Perak DAP convention for investigation over the commotion that occurred at the event at the Ipoh Convention Centre last Sunday.

Perak police chief Mior Faridalathrash Wahid said based on investigations, the convention was attended by 1,731 delegates, which was less than the maximum capacity of 4,500 people allowed in the hall.

“We are now analysing the videos and photographs taken at the scene to identify the individuals and offences for violation of the SOPs of the conditional movement control order,” he said in a statement today.

He said an investigation paper had also been opened under the Emergency (Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases) (Amendment) Ordinance 2021 which, once complete, would be referred to the deputy public prosecutor for further instruction.

“The public should not make any speculations or irresponsible statements on the case for fear of disrupting the police investigation,” he added.

The commotion broke out at the convention on March 14 following an allegation on the presence of phantom voters.
