ALOR SETAR, July 28 (Bernama) — Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said the attorney-general was looking into the prosecution of those people arrested for participating in the illegal rally in Kuala Lumpur on July 9.
The prime minister said the action against them would be consistent with the severity of their violation of the law.
“This is up to the attorney-general. I believe he will look into the cases and make a decision soon on whether these people had led the provocation against the authorities or were merely followers,” he told reporters after opening a 1Malaysia youth gathering in Pendang, near here.
On allegations that there had been false reports against the police during the rally, Najib said the attorney-general would act accordingly if the reports were indeed false.
On the six Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM) activists still under detention for alleged possession of subversive documents in relation to the illegal rally, the prime minister said they were being well taken care of by the authorities.
“The matter is being considered by the Home Minister and the police. They will engage with the group. I believe any decision taken would be in the best consideration,” he said.
Asked to comment on action against the group which had allegedly attempted to promote communist ideology in the country, Najib said communism was an obsolete ideology and was rejected by society.
“If they had wanted to use force to topple His Majesty’s government elected by the people, we will look into the offence they have committed,” he said.
