KUALA LUMPUR: Errant motorists with warrants of arrest against them will not be shown any mercy although police have toned down their Ops Warta Khas operations.
They must pay the maximum fine of RM300 or challenge their warrant in court.
Federal traffic police chief Senior Asst Comm Mohd Fuad Abdul Latiff said there were still 1.75 million warrants of arrests to be served.
He urged motorists to come forward and settle their outstanding summonses immediately or face arrest.
“During Ops Warta Khas between June 16 and 27, we managed to execute 16,486 arrest warrants. This is a 70% increase from the 9,698 executed two weeks before the launch of the operations,” he said, adding that those caught had since settled their summonses.
“In the first six months of this year, over 250,000 outstanding warrants of arrest were resolved,” he said at Bukit Aman here yesterday.
There was also a 93% increase in the number of motorists settling their outstanding summonses during the operations, from 63,933 in the two weeks prior to 123,193, said SAC Mohd Fuad.
He also warned that although police had toned down the operations, this did not mean that those with outstanding warrants would be “forgotten”.
“If you are stopped at a road block and we find that you have an outstanding warrant, we will take action,” he said.
SAC Mohd Fuad said police were also preparing for Ops Selamat during the Hari Raya festive period.
“Ops Selamat will last 15 days beginning July 21,” he said, adding that the Inspector-General of Police would launch the campaign on July 17.
He also reminded motorists to refrain from bribing his personnel.
“If you are caught, you will be charged under the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission Act 2009,” he said, adding that those with information on policemen accepting or asking for bribes should immediately report it to the authorities.
