Police to enforce roadblocks in parts of Klang Valley

KUALA LUMPUR: Police will enforce roadblocks in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya following instructions to implement the conditional movement control order (MCO) from tomorrow, says Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani.

The roadblocks will be set up at several locations in the Klang Valley starting 12.01am tomorrow.

“The roadblocks will be mounted in the same way as before (during the MCO in March).

“Instructions for the deployment of police officers to the roadblock locations will be arranged by the Kuala Lumpur and Selangor OCPDs, ” he said.

Meanwhile, Chief of Defence Force Jen Tan Sri Affendi Buang said the Malaysian Armed Forces (MAF) would work with the police in mounting the roadblocks.

“MAF and the police will do as they did before, ” he said.

Yesterday, Senior Minister (Security) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob announced that the government agreed to implement conditional MCO in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya from 12.01am from Oct 14 to Oct 27.

The decision was reached at a special National Security Council meeting chaired by Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin yesterday, after consulting with the Health Ministry and taking into account the recent increase in Covid-19-positive cases in Klang, Petaling and Gombak districts. — Bernama
