The police will take action against those who disregard the advice not to attend the outlawed Bersih 4.0 rally scheduled to be held at the Taman Awam Teluk Likas tomorrow.

Kota Kinabalu City police chief, ACP M. Chandra said there was a risk the rally might affect public safety in the event an untoward incident was provoked by rally participants.

"If the rally is held, it will have a negative impact on public order, in particular to the traffic, and inconvenience visitors to the park," he said in a statement here today.

Chandra said action could be taken under Section 9(5) of the Peaceful Assembly Act (PAA) on the organisers and under Section 4 (2) (c) of the same Act against those participating in the rally.

Both relevant sections provide for a fine of up to RM10,000, upon conviction.
