Traders operating around Kuala Lumpur city centre have filed an injunction application against Bersih and Red Shirts planning to stage rally on Saturday.

Former Bersih chairperson Ambiga Sreenevasan told newsmen that the traders claim Bersih rally would cause damages and disrupt their business as it is a weekend.

The suit will be heard at 4pm today at Kuala Lumpur High Court.
