No interstate or inter-district travel for long-distance married couples, says Ismail Sabri

PETALING JAYA: Long-distance married couples will no longer be able to apply for police permission letters to cross states or districts starting Tuesday (June 1) until June 14, says Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

The Senior Minister (Security) said that every citizen has to sacrifice, with some having to close their businesses for the next two weeks, and that long-distance married couples would also have to make some sacrifices.

“We have decided to not allow such couples to travel across states or districts during the two-week period, ” said Ismail Sabri in a joint press conference with Health director-general Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah on Sunday (May 30).
