KUALA LUMPUR: The police will step up checks on Covid-19 SOP compliance following the stark increase in new cases.

Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani said the compliance operation task force would carry out more stringent checks, especially in crowded areas and places of public focus.

“The task force, led by the police, has and will increase inspections from time to time.

“For example, Kelantan police recently issued compounds to those involved in a water festival in the state, ” he said after launching a book on the history of the General Operations Force at its headquarters in Cheras yesterday.

Acryl Sani said the instruction to step up the checks had been relayed to all state police contingents.

“We will focus on all celebrations involving the gathering of a large number of people where physical distancing is disregarded, ” he said.While some increase of Covid-19 cases involved clusters from construction sites, Acryl Sani said the public must adhere to the SOP.

“Based on my observation, physical distancing is being disregarded more and more each day.

“We must ensure the public complies with the SOP to stop the spread of the virus, ” he said.

On the the smuggling of imported meat by a cartel, he said Bukit Aman was in the midst of completing the investigation.

Acryl Sani said several things needed to be checked and ironed out before the investigation paper could be sent to the Attorney General’s Chambers.

“We are still investigating the matter and we have been receiving more police reports, almost daily, ” he said.

The police are investigating the case under Section 505(b) of the Penal Code for causing public alarm and distress.

Among others who attended the event were Bukit Aman Internal Security and Public Order Department director Comm Datuk Seri Abd Rahim Jaafar and GOF’s Brigade Tengah commander Senior Asst Comm Muhammad Abdul Halim.
