KUALA LUMPUR: Three people claimed trial at a Sessions Court here to additional charges of rioting in the recent Bersih 3.0 rally while a fourth pleaded not guilty to charges of causing hurt.

Rasah PKR deputy division chief R. Tangam, 50, PKR Youth exco Farhan Ibrahim @ Alias, 29, and lawyer G.N. Rajesh Kumar, 44, all pleaded not guilty to charges of being members of an illegal group.

They are said to have committed the offence at 3pm on April 28 in Jalan Raja here.

The three were charged under Section 147 of the Penal Code. If convicted, they face up to two years’ jail, fine, or both.

They are said to have committed the offence with more than five other supporters who remain at large.

Tangam, Farhan and Rajesh claimed trial last month to participating in an unlawful assembly under Section 143 of the Penal Code.
