SHAH ALAM: The Malaysian Armed Forces troops are reporting to their designated stations with the police as enforcement of the movement control order intensifies on Sunday (March 22).

Prior to that, District OCPD Asst Comm Baharudin Mat Taib addressed the soldiers who had been sent to the Shah Alam police district headquarters, calling it a historic day for all.

"I, representing the Selangor police chief (Comm Datuk Noor Azam Jamaludin), thank you all for joining us, especially with Shah Alam police.

"I hope we all are able to do our duties to the best of our ability to ensure the spread is contained.

We pray that the MCO ends successfully on March 31," he said.

He added that several more briefings would be held between the two parties as the day went on.

Previously, Defence Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob had announced that the military would be deployed to help enforce the MCO starting Sunday.

“We believe that with the army’s assistance, the movement control will be better enforced, ” he said during a press conference on Friday (March 20).
