KUALA LUMPUR: The police have advised the public against gathering outside Istana Negara on Sunday (Oct 25) in conjunction with a special meeting of the Conference of Rulers here.

"In a bid to curb the spread of Covid-19, all media personnel there are also advised to comply with the conditional movement control order (MCO) standard operating procedures.

"We will also introduce the MySejahtera registration system for all media practitioners, agencies and teams on duty outside Gates 1,2 and 3 of Istana Negara," he said in a statement Saturday (Oct 24).

ACP Zairulnizam said any failure to comply with the standard operating procedures will result in an immediate issuance of a compound under Rule 11 of the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Regulations.

"Any provocation will be dealt with in accordance with the available laws.
