Self-employed delivery riders advised to get police permission to pass through roadblocks

PUTRAJAYA: Self-employed delivery riders are advised to apply for police permission to provide their service during the movement control order, says Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

The Senior Minister said likewise, companies and restaurants which have their own delivery service staff, should issue a letter to facilitate their employees' movement for work purposes.

“We are aware that some companies have their own delivery personnel and some individuals offer these services.

“We have discussed with the police and the outcome is for employers to issue letters on behalf of their delivery staff.

“For self-employed delivery riders, they are to seek permission from the police. We hope this will be done as soon as possible so that delivery riders will be able to pass through roadblocks without much hassle, ” he said on Tuesday (Jan 19).
