KUALA LUMPUR: A total of 175 police reports have been made against both Bersih 2.0 group and Red Shirt movement as of September.

The Home Ministry, in a written reply to Tanjong MP Ng Wei Aik today, said investigations into the groups' activities were still ongoing.

"If there is a need and adequate proof, arrests will be made and individuals involved will be charged in court," it said.

Ng had asked about the alleged lack of police action against the Red Shirts and its leader, Sungai Besar Umno chief Datuk Jamal Yunos.

In the reply, the ministry insisted that there was intervention and action taken on the matter.

The ministry further said it encouraged all individuals to uphold the law, as called for in the Federal Constitution.

"Let us not fight for something but forget that we ourselves are going against the law." the ministry added.

Bersih 2.0 is currently holding a nationwide convoy to promote the upcoming Bersih 5 street rally on Nov 19. The convoy, in several areas, has been met by interruptions from the Red Shirts.

It was reported that a number of police reports had been lodged against both groups over the planned rally and also violence that erupted during convoys.
