KUALA LUMPUR: Bukit Aman is tracking down certain individuals who made unauthorised interstate travel, says Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador (pic).
The Inspector-General of Police said certain individuals were believed to have taken advantage of the situation after the government allowed certain sectors to be operational during the conditional movement control order (MCO).
"Such unauthorised interstate travel is detrimental in efforts to stop the spread of Covid-19.
"I appeal to all parties to comply with the regulations stipulated by the government for the good of all of us as our goal is to stop the virus from spreading," he said when contacted on Sunday (May 31).
The IGP reminded the people not to take advantage of the situation by travelling interstate without authorisation and violating the conditional MCO.
"Actually, the police don't prefer to issue compounds to those who violate the conditional MCO.
"We hope that the people who don't have any emergency or are not involved in essential services sectors, to stay at home and not go on Hari Raya visits or travel interstate without authorisation.
"We are not keen to issue summonses or compounds while we hope that the people can self-regulate and adhere to the standard operating procedures (SOPs) set by the Health Ministry and National Security Council," Abdul Hamid said.
The main goal of the conditional MCO is to curb, stop and prevent the spread of Covid-19, he added.
"Always think of the greater good and comply with the conditional MCO," he said.
