Bersih, ‘red shirts’ yet to pay clean up costs, says ministry

The organisers of last year's Bersih 4 protest and the 'red shirt' rally have yet to pay their respective clean up bills, the Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government Ministry said today. The ministry said Bersih 4 organisers owed authorities RM64,955 for the August 31 overnight rally near Dataran Merdeka, while the 'red shirts' owed RM38,214.70 for their September 16 gathering in Padang Merbok. "In line with that, based on the information received, Alam Flora Sdn Bhd has taken action by sending an invoice on September 1 2015 to Bersih organisers and another one to the 'red shirt' rally organisers on September 30 2015. "Hence, any follow-up action in relation to demanding payment from organisers will be handled by Alam Flora Sdn Bhd, since the concessionaire has the right to make such demands and is the provider of such services," said the ministry in a parliamentary written reply. – March 10, 2016.
