PETALING JAYA: Action will be taken against any party which incites or promotes violence, including the so-called "red shirts", says Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar.

"We will take action against anyone who provokes other parties and this includes the red shirts," said the Inspector-General of Police.

Khalid said any party, be it Bersih or the red shirts would be dealt with to the fullest extent of the law if they were involved in acts of violence.

"We will carry out our duties without fear or favour. he said when contacted Wednesday.

The police are committed to maintaining law and order. Our priority is the safety and security of the people. Any act of provocation or violence will not be tolerated," he said.

He also reminded the public not to join the Bersih 4 rally this weekend as it has been deemed illegal.
