Police moved in to stop Anwar from addressing a ceramah outside Azmin Ali’s service centre in Gombak last night.

This ceramah, which aimed to highlight the latest developments in his case among othere recent events, began at 9.00pm.

A crowd of a few thousand turned up to listen to the various speakers. When it was Anwar’s turn at around 11.30pm, the cops moved in after a few minutes to prevent him from speaking.

Three people were reportedly injured in the police action at a Pakatan ceramah yesterday.
