POLICE have recorded statements from 13 individuals in connection with the “Where are the Littoral Combat Ships?” protest gathering held in front of a shopping mall at Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman, Kuala Lumpur, on Sunday.
Dang Wangi district police chief Noor Delhan Yahaya confirmed the matter.
“We are in the midst of completing the investigation paper before being referred to the deputy public prosecutor for further action,” he said.
Earlier, several individuals who were called in to have their statements recorded arrived at the Dang Wangi district police headquarters at 3pm and left about an hour later.
They included Muda president Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman and secretary-general Amir Abd Hadi, DAP Youth chief Howard Lee Chuan and activist Siti Kassim.
