PKR to go ahead with 'Free Anwar 901' campaign

SHAH ALAM: Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) will go ahead with its "Free Anwar 901" campaign although no application for a police permit has been made by the organisers.

"We definitely don't intend to apply for a permit to hold the campaign rally as we know a permit will not be issued (by police) as had happened before," said Selangor PKR information chief, Shuhaimi Shafie.

The gathering planned for this Jan 9 is said to be aimed at seeking justice for Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim when the Kuala Lumpur High Court gives its verdict on the sodomy case involving the opposition leader on that day.
Asked on the 336 police reports lodged by various groups from throughout the country up to yesterday against the campaign, Shuhaimi said PKR would not bow to such pressure.

He said besides the Kuala Lumpur High Court, the campaign would also be carried out at other locations in the federal capital, but these had not been determined yet. -
