Metrotvnews.com, Jakarta: Law enforcement agencies will deploy as many as 20,000 personnel to secure a rally against the Government Regulation in Lieu of Law (Perppu) on Mass Organizations and communism threat.

The protest will be held in front of the Parliament Building Complex in Senayan, Central Jakarta on Wednesday, September 28, 2017. The demonstration will be organized by the 212 Presidium.

The personnel will consist of police and military officers. They will come from a number of regions.

"Some of them have arrived here. We have prepared a number of posts," said the Jakarta Metro Police chief Inspector General Idham at the Jakarta Metro Police headquarters in Senayan, South Jakarta on Tuesday, September 27, 2017.

Several mass organizations raided the Indonesian Legal Aid Institute Foundation (YLBHI) office earlier this month. They accused YLBHI of holding a pro-communism event.
