Richard Yeoh announced speaker corner for PJ
Petaling Jaya will soon have a speaker corner where city dwellers can express their views without fear of getting arrested, and that speaker corner will probably be in or somewhere near Civic Center or PJ City Hall. This was announced by PJ City Councilor Richard Yeoh. However, I think this thing about not getting arrested may have been mis-stated. What Richard Yeoh probably meant was I think that one can give speeches and city dwellers are probably free to assemble to listen to the speeches without having to worry about whether the assembly is an illegal assembly.
If you have more information about what exactly Richard Yeoh meant, please let us know by leaving a comment. In the meantime I will try to get some information from another city councilor I know.
