The police have not received any application for the "Save Malaysia" rally planned for this Saturday in the federal capital.
Kuala Lumpur police chief Allaudeen Abdul Majid said the provisions in Section 9(1) of the Peaceful Assembly Act 2012 required the application for a permit to be made at least five days before the date of the event.
"The period has ended but no application has been made by the organisers," he told a press conference in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.
Allaudeen said so far, the police have received six reports on the proposed gathering purportedly being organised by Perikatan Nasional Youth.
The police have recorded statements from five individuals, including Pasir Mas MP Ahmad Fadhli Shaari and Machang MP Wan Ahmad Fayhsal Wan Ahmad Kamal, to assist in the investigation, he said.
He said the police also recorded statements from Gombak Setia assemblyman Hilman Idham and two journalists who covered Fadhli's press conference about the rally.
