KUALA LUMPUR, July 5 — An independent panel led by Tun Hanif Omar to probe allegations of impropriety during the Bersih rally is revisiting today several sites in the city where violent clashes between demonstrators and the authorities happened on April 28.
The Hanif panel’s tour is also taking place on the same day the Human Rights Commission of Malaysia (Suhakam) starts its official inquiry.
Its route will cover Jalan Raja, Jalan Parlimen and Dataran Merdeka, the historic square where the police had set up barbed wire blockades to prevent Bersih demonstrators from holding their peaceful sit-down protest against the government’s delay in carrying out electoral reform earlier this year.
