Total lockdown: Dang Wangi cops to have mobile roadblocks, Miti letters only required on June 3 onwards

KUALA LUMPUR: Mobile roadblocks will be set up in the Dang Wangi area during the total lockdown movement control order.

Dang Wangi OCPD Asst Comm Mohamad Zainal Abdullah said two teams will be deployed to conduct the mobile roadblocks within the district.

"We will not have static roadblocks, instead we will conduct mobile roadblocks and the locations will change depending on the days and needs.

"We will also conduct spot checks on the people," he told reporters after conducting inspections at a government agency's building and a roadblock at Jalan Ampang on Tuesday (June 1).

Dang Wangi police will also deploy 21 compliance operation teams to ensure that people adhere to Covid-19 standard operating procedure (SOP).

On government offices inspected so far, ACP Mohamad Zainal said the managements complied with the ruling that only 20% of the workforce could operate from the office.

"On the first day of the total lockdown, most of the offices and businesses complied with the SOP by limiting the number of personnel at the office.

"Only essential services are allowed to operate during this period," he added.

Police will perform checks on offices if they received complaints of non-compliance as well as if they discovered information as such, he added.

Meanwhile on the International Trade and Industry Ministry (Miti) letters for workers in essential services, ACP Mohamad Zainal said that such workers can use their respective company's letters when stopped at roadblocks.

"We are giving such workers until the third day of the total lockdown to obtain the letters from Miti.

"We understand it takes time to obtain the letter and Miti is in the midst of issuing them," he said.

He also advised the public to stay at home if they have no urgent matters to settle.

"Help us stop the spread of the virus by staying at home," he added.
