Police and the Attorney-General's Chambers will decide whether to press charges against organisers of Saturday's illegal rallies, said Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
He also dismissed claims of police brutality, adding police personnel had used minimum force when acting against the demonstrators.
“It is up to the police and AG to decide (to press charges). It is not up to me.
“Police had also used minimum force and there was no actual physical contact with the demonstrators,” the Prime Minister told a press conference on Sunday.
On reports that a person had died during the Saturday's protests, the Prime Minister said the person had died because of a pre-existing medical condition stressing it was not due to physical abuse.
The husband of Setiawangsa PKR wanita chief, who was believed to have participated in the Bersih rally, died of a heart attack on Saturday.
Acting city police chief SAC Amar Singh confirmed that Baharuddin Ahmad, who was in his 50s, died after complaining of chest pains at KLCC at about 4.30pm.
The Prime Minister also commended the police for their success in dealing with the demonstrators, adding police personnel had acted professionally.
“Even when the demonstrators were arrested, they were given food and a place to perform prayers,” he said.
