39 roadblocks set up in KL

KUALA LUMPUR: Police will conduct 39 roadblocks in six districts in the city during the movement control order to curb the spread of Covid-19.

Kuala Lumpur police chief, Comm Datuk Saiful Azly Kamaruddin, said the operation for the next two weeks involved 1,291 personnel in 37 teams.

“We are committed to ensuring the public adhere to the standard operating procedures, ” he said.

“We will assess the situation throughout the two weeks and adapt accordingly, ” he said.

He said the number of roadblocks will be increased if needed.

He said strict and firmer actions will be taken against those who flout the SOP.

He also reminded those with valid reasons to travel interstate to go to the nearest police station with the required forms.

“They no longer have to go to the police station located at where they are living. We will facilitate and assist, provided they have valid reasons, ” Comm Saiful Azly said.
