KUALA LUMPUR, May 8 — Pakatan Rakyat (PR) de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim's rally at the Kelana Jaya stadium tonight is legal as a 10-day notification to the police is not required under the Peaceful Assembly Act (PAA) 2012, senior lawyer Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan said today.
Ambiga pointed out that the state-owned Kelana Jaya stadium was a "designated place of assembly", which would not require a 10-day notice under Section 9(2)(a), and not a "public place" as defined in Section 3 because the stadium is not currently open to or is being used by the public.
"My reading is that this is an assembly at a designated place, so the 10-day notification doesn't apply," Ambiga told The Malaysian Insider today
