SUBANG JAYA (Bernama): The police will be updating the interstate travel permit application system to prevent the falsification of documents in future, says Datuk Seri Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani (pic).
Without elaborating further on the system, the Inspector-General of Police said this was because police have detected several tactics in faking cross-state documents since the implementation of movement control order this month.
He said the tactics are quite difficult to detect as many members of the public are attempting to find ways to overcome the existing interstate system.
"Police will find ways to improve the system and put a stop to these tactics.
"It is normal for the people to fake such documents but PDRM will tighten up the loopholes, ” he told reporters after joining Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob during a visit to personnel manning the roadblock at the USJ Subang toll plaza here Wednesday (May 12) night.
Acryl Sani said the police had so far rejected 2,730 interstate travel applications over various frivolous excuses.
Meanwhile, Ismail Sabri advised the people to continue complying with the MCO and not to attempt crossing state and district borders.
"I have visited the roadblocks set up at the Eco Majestic toll plaza and USJ Subang toll plaza and found there were not many cars on Hari Raya night (Wednesday night) as expected.
"So I believe all are at home and did not jam up the roads. I hope the situation reflects that the people are adhering to every order issued by the government in not crossing state and district borders, ” the Defence Minister said.
Also present were Defence Ministry secretary-general Datuk Seri Muez Abd Aziz and Chief of Defence Forces Gen Tan Sri Affendi Buang. - Bernama
