Gatco settlers bus detained by police

PUCHONG: The bus boarded by 28 Gatco Settlers was detained by police in the Paroi area, Seremban today.

The Gatco Settlers were on their way to meet Negeri Sembilan Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Aminuddin Harun regarding their dissatisfaction with the way the State Government EXCO handled the Gatco issue.

Following that, a police car stopped the bus that the settlers were boarding and confiscated all the placards and banners, as well as confiscated all the settlers’ identity cards.

In the last check by The Leaders Online, the police have returned their identity cards and were not allowed for a gathering. They were then escorted back to their settlement.

However, around 15 settlers who then came by their own transportation carried on with the protest.

It’s not the first time Kampung Gatco settlers claim they have been repeatedly arrested and mistreated – all after they were swindled by the very people who had promised them a bright future.

More to come
