PETALING JAYA: The enhanced MCO will be enforced at two illegal immigrant detention centres in Johor Baru, says Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.
The Senior Minister (Security) said the decision was made to enforce the EMCO at the Home Ministry detention centre in Setia Tropika and the Immigration Department lockup at the Sultan Iskandar Building following an assessment by the Health Ministry.
"Out of 82 illegal immigrants at the centre in Setia Tropika, 39 tested positive.
"Meanwhile 51 positive cases were reported from the Immigration Department lockup," he said.
The EMCO will begin on Sunday and last until April 10.
On enforcement statistics, he said that 79 people had been issued compounds, with one person remanded.
Ops Benteng yesterday also saw 10 illegal immigrants arrested, with six vehicles seized.
