KUALA LUMPUR, June 29 — The police will not only arrest those sporting Bersih T-shirts but may also take action against anyone using any medium to promote the illegal rally, the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) has said.

“Not just T-shirts but shoes, cars, buses. If these are the tools used to encourage people to gather (illegally), this amounts to sedition,” Tan Sri Ismail Omar (picture) told reporters at Bukit Aman police headquarters here today.

Earlier today, Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein declared T-shirts bearing messages in support of Bersih illegal as they were related to an illegal assembly.

He, however, did not specify the legal provision that the garments were deemed to have breached.

    I would rather be arrested for being BERSIH than to share the fat on the table with KOTOR BN politicians-lah.

    Hello, IGP. Even T-shirts, shoes, cars and buses now know the difference between what is BERSEH and what is KOTOR?

    God forgive BN and IGP and Police and MACC and judges.

    Can someone sell yellow underwear with 1Malaysia logo on it and see if the Police dare arrest those who wear it ?

    Police got too much resources, too spacious the lokap and too much food in the warehouse izzit???
    If wearing “Bersih” were to be arrested, my friend kak zaiton suggested “Clean” shuld be ok.

    Can someone please tell me what is a pro-BERSIH shoe? Let me go out and buy two pairs.
    This is ridiculous, to say that wearing a pair of shoes is seditious, but doing nothing about warning Chinese to stock up food.
    This government have gone bongkus.

    We must change the tenant at Putrajaya

    Illegal leaders want to stay on to make the worst for everyone..

    Illegal leaders had gone worst in all ways and we need to save the nation from further rot..

    Royal Commission of Inquiry on Election Commission is the only way to stop the rot..

    IGP, you miserable jerk, are you paid by tax-payers to wash your UMNO masters’ blowhles?
    Look yourself at the mirror and see if you are fit enough to wear the blue uniform…or, you are simply another sniffing kampong dog.

    B warned, folks, polis can demand 2 cek your bra n undies if they r yellow n bersih
    KOTOR (like stained with milk, yellowish seminal fluid n vaginal discharge) OK 1

    So, b ready 2 b asked 2 undress, mayb 2 do a few squats too
    Very soon, yellow will be removed fr our national flag
