No new directives on inter-state travel requirements, says Cheras OCPD

KUALA LUMPUR: There are no new directives on the requirements for interstate travel permits despite a notice on a police station door demanding strict proof due to recent "instafamous" incidents.

Cheras OCPD Asst Comm Mohamed Mokhsein Mohamed Zon said the notice – a photo of which has gone viral on social media – did not reflect any new directive on the permission needed for interstate travel.

"The requirements for such permits remain the same. "Those who wish to travel interstate must have valid reasons and furnish proof as per the Covid-19 standard operating procedures," he said when contacted on Tuesday (April 6).

"I have always reminded my men to check the validity of the interstate travel request.

"Those who wish to make such trips must show us proof such as supporting documents, whether it is for work or other urgent matters," he said.

Last week, TV host-entrepreneur Neelofa and her husband PU Riz caused a stir for allegedly violating the Covid-19 SOP by travelling to Langkawi.

While photos of the couple seemed to indicate that they were vacationing, Neelofa had explained that she was in Langkawi for work.

The police have since recorded the statements of the couple.
