Police have obtained a court order banning any gathering at Dataran Merdeka, Sogo shopping complex and Masjid Jamek ahead of the #TangkapAzamBaki protest tomorrow.

Dang Wangi district police chief Noor Dellhan Yahaya said the court order would be in force for seven days beginning tomorrow.

“We advise the public against taking part in any activity that goes against the law. We will not compromise with anyone who will organise any kind of protest,” he said in a press conference today.

The #TangkapAzamBaki rally is scheduled for 11am tomorrow, organised by civil society groups and the youth wings of several opposition parties, following the scandal surrounding Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission chairman Azam Baki.

Noor Delhan said more than 1,010 police officers will be deployed tomorrow, adding that traffic from Jalan Kuching, Jalan Kinabalu, Jalan Maharajalela, Jalan Hang Tuah, Jalan Imbi, and Jalan Sultan Ismail will also be redirected from 7am.

Noor Delhan also said the following stations will be closed:

LRT: Pudu, Hang Tuah, Masjid Jamek, Plaza Rakyat, Bandaraya, Sultan Sulaiman, Kampung Baru, Dang Wangi, Pasar Seni

MRT: Bukit Bintang, Merdeka, Pasar Seni

Monorail: Medan Tuanku, Bukit Nanas, Raja Chulan, Bukit Bintang, Imbi, Hang Tuah, Maharajalela, Tun Sambanthan, KL Sentral
