Miti authorisation letter must have QR code to avoid forgery, says Bukit Aman

KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): Authorisation letters issued by the International Trade and Industry Ministry (Miti) will now come with a QR code to prevent falsification, says Bukit Aman.

Bukit Aman Internal Security and Public Order Department SAC (Operations) SAC MV Srikumar M Nair said that police personnel will scan the code at roadblocks to ensure that the authorisation letters are genuine.

“When the QR code is scanned, it will request a code number, which only the police have. When we key in the code number, we will know if the letter tallies with the letter holder,” he told Bernama in an interview for Ruang Bicara PDRM on Monday (May 31) night.

He also rejected claims that there was a double standard applied when it came to permission for interstate and inter-district crossings for some individuals or groups.

“PDRM does not look at golongan kayangan (upper class) or otherwise. If one has valid documents and firm proof, then the application to cross state or district borders will be permitted,” he said. — Bernama
