IGP Warns Against Making Seditious Remarks

(Bernama) — The police will not compromise with any group that goes against the law by creating upheaval or issuing statements which can disrupt public order.

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan said the statement could cause confusion and threaten national security and public order.

He was commenting on a Harakah Daily report quoting PAS secretary-general Datuk Kamaruddin Jaafar as saying that Malaysians would resort to street demonstrations like the red shirted protestors in Pattaya if the Perak State Assembly was not dissolved.

"The police will come down hard on those who make such remarks. They are deemed seditious.

"We will investigate those who had made and written such remarks. We have to check on the matter before taking any action," Musa said when contacted tonight.
