Ismail Sabri clarifies inter-district travel restrictions, says administrative borders apply, not police districts

PUTRAJAYA: The government has come out to clarify confusion on inter-district travel restrictions, saying that district administrative borders, and not police districts, are being used to determine the limitations.

Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said there had been complaints from the public that they were stopped and were compounded by the police at roadblocks set up within a district, when the government has allowed movements within the district.

“For public knowledge, in determining the district borders, we use the district administrative lines under the administration of a district officer.

“For instance, Temerloh is a district and people can travel the length and breadth of the district, ” he said Tuesday (Feb 23).

Ismail Sabri said those who had been issued with compounds in such cases can appeal to the Health Ministry through district health offices where the compounds were issued.

He also said that while the maximum compound is RM1,000, offenders can appeal and health officers can use their discretion to lower the amount.
