Police offer video on Bersih for screening by TV stations

Police are offering the video on the July 9 illegal rally for screening by any of the local television stations.

Deputy Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar said so far, only Radio Televisyen Malaysia (RTM) has accepted the offer and screened the video.

“If there are other television stations interested to screen the video, we will give it to them. The video clip can also be watched on the website of the Royal Malaysian Police as we had uploaded it.

“We thank RTM for screening the video to show what actually happened during the July 9 illegal rally. By screening the video, we hope the public will get truthful and accurate information on the rally,” he added.

Khalid hoped that after this, there would be no more lies and accusations that the police were violent and brutal in dispersing the illegal rally.

He had earlier watched the full-dress rehearsal of the passing-out parade of new soldiers and police constables for the 1/2011 series at the Army Basic Training Centre (Pusasda), today.

Also present was Army chief Zulkifli Zainal Abidin.
