KUALA LUMPUR: Police arrested 29 people who snubbed a court order and went ahead with an illegal gathering at the Parliament House yesterday.

They were detained after they showed up to submit a Bersih memorandum to protest against the Constitution (Amendment) Bill to extend Election Commission members’ retirement age from 65 to 66.

> Parti Keadilan Rakyat, PAS and Parti Socialist Malaysia leaders were among those arrested at Parliament House.

> The Dewan Rakyat passed the Bill yesterday with more than a two-thirds majority after Opposition MPs staged a walkout.

> Seventeen of those arrested were released on police bail and the rest freed unconditionally.

Elsewhere, Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) legal adviser P. Uthayakumar was charged and detained over alleged seditious offences.
