Police will ask the organiser of the Himpunan Hijau 2.0 to explain why several conditions were breached during the the rally held at Kuantan Municipal Council 4 (MPK4) field here today.
District police chief Assistant Commissioner Mohd Jasmani Yusoff said the organiser had failed to comply to some of the conditions, including allowing several groups to march to the venue while several opposition leaders had delivered political speeches at the event.
Jasmani said police also regretted the organiser's action to allow children below 15 to join the two-hour rally.
During a meeting with the police on Friday, the organiser had agreed to certain conditions including limiting the gathering time at the field for two hours from 10am.
The organiser also agreed not to allow the speakers to talk on other matters apart from the Lynas issues.
Police have allowed the organiser to hold the the Himpunan Hijau 2.0 rally which they initially planned to organise it at MPK1 field, in front of Teruntum office and shopping.
The meeting on Friday was attended by State police chief Datuk Sharifuddin Ab Ghani, Jasmani and representatives from the organiser including Kuantan member of parliament Fuziah Salleh and Himpunan Hijau 2.0 chairman Wong Tack.
About 3,000 people joined the rally at MPK4 field today where Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim promised to cancel the Lynas project if the opposition took over the government.
