GOMBAK: The time for warnings has passed - those who are caught for being outside without a proper reason during this lockdown period will be issued compounds on the spot, says Gombak OCPD Asst Comm Arifai Tarawe.

He said, however, based on his observations, the majority of the community here has abided by the standard operating procedure.

"We have a total of four static roadblocks, as well as four mobile roadblocks set up throughout this period.

"The four static roadblocks are located at the Gombak toll plaza heading toward Gombak, Rawang Utara toll plaza entering Rawang, as well as KM14 Jalan Ipoh- Rawang in both directions.

"The mobile roadblocks will be placed at different locations daily according to necessity," he told reporters when met at the roadblock along KM14 Jalan Ipoh- Rawang on Tuesday (June 1).

He said motorists would be checked to ensure they were complying with the movement restrictions which allowed the community to only move within a 10km radius of their residence for valid reasons.

"During our initial checks in the wee hours of Tuesday, we did notice some individuals who were still using the old International Trade and Industry Ministry (Miti) supporting documents which expired on May 31.

"We will only give them a chance for the next few hours before we start taking action.

"We urge all those who are moving about for work to ensure they have the right supporting documents in hand," he said.

ACP Arifai said the community has already gone through similar circumstances for over a year, and SOP compliance was nothing new.

"They should already know and understand what they can and cannot do during this period," he said.
