This evening , my wife and myself have a good walk around Dataran Merdeka. The whole area was cleared of traffic, and cordoned off. I think the police must be waiting for the candle light vigil for RPK.
We arrived by LRT at around 8pm. We walked from Masjid Jamek to the junction of Tuanku Abdul Rahman and Dataran Merdeka. The whole area was full of Police cars, police in uniform, special branch in plain clothes.
My wife and I just walked through and nobody stopped us, probably thinking we were tourists. Here and there , we see a few citizens like us, walking around . But at the other end, a group of people were blocked and refused entry into the area.
We walked to the back of Royal Selangor CLub but still did not find anyone holding the vigils for RPK.
So we have a good walk around for about an hour, from one end of Dataran to another, saying Hi to the police officers, and greeting a few fellow good citizens walking around there. We did not find anyone holding vigil. I did not manage to find Haris Ibrahim.
Why must the government deploy so many policemen there? We are all good citizens trying to do a good cause for the nation. These police could have been deployed for catching criminals.
I have taken afew photos from my old handphone, 1 mega pixel, not very clear, but still you can see the situation in Dataran tonight.
