MCO: Kelantan police issue over 52k inter-state, inter-district travel permits so far

KOTA BARU (Bernama): Kelantan police have so far issued more than 52,000 permits for inter-district and inter-state travel since the movement control order was implemented on Jan 16.

State police chief Datuk Shafien Mamat (pic) said the majority of the applicants required the permit as they were either self-employed or daily workers without an employer.

"However, now that we are into the second week, there are less applications compared to the first three days of the MCO," he told reporters after attending a Back-to-School programme and monitoring the situation at SMK Pengkalan Chepa (1) near here Sunday (Jan 24).

To ensure the SOPs are adhered to after school hours, police patrol cars and motorcycle patrol units would be monitoring the students, he said.

"When they are in school, the students do adhere to the rules as they are under the watchful eyes of the school authorities but when school is over, we fear they may forget about putting on face masks or physical distancing when with friends.

"With police presence around the schools, they will be reminded on the SOP compliance, ” he said, adding that police will monitor the situation 10 minutes before and after school hours.

In addition, Shafien said police would seek the assistance of the school liaison officers throughout the state on the matter. - Bernama
