Roadblocks set up amid protest fears - Malaysiakini

Jul 13, 08 2:30pm

Police have put up road blocks in the capital as they brace for protests ahead of a possible debate of no confidence in Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi tomorrow.

Police said several roads leading to the parliament building would be sealed off tomorrow and urged people not to protest, although the Keadilan opposition party denied Sunday it had called for any demonstrations. All police leave has also been cancelled.

"Police came to Anwar's home today and presented the court order restricting him from going near parliament on Monday. If Anwar breaches the order, he could be arrested and charged in court," he told AFP.

The court order will allow the police to arrest on sight if Anwar and opposition supporters are spotted within five kilometres of Parliament.
