Police: Many in Kelantan claim they are unaware of conditional MCO

KOTA BARU (Bernama): On the first day the conditional MCO was enforced in Kelantan on Saturday (Nov 21), police found there many claiming they were unaware it was in effect.

Kelantan police chief DCP Shafien Mamat said this could possibly be because the conditional MCO announcement was made on a public holiday in the state.

However, he said police were using their discretion when enforcing the order and called on the people in Kelantan to comply with the standard operating procedures (SOP) and to obtain a letter from the employer or police for cross-district travel.

Police also requested the people's patience at roadblocks, which could take longer than usual to get through.

"We have to inspect each vehicle wishing to cross districts," he said.

"Police are also providing a special lane for frontliners and emergencies at all roadblocks," he said in a statement Sunday (Nov 22). – Bernama
