IGP: Nation's safety and security well in hand

KUALA LUMPUR: The country's safety and public order are under control, says Datuk Seri Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani (pic).

The Inspector-General of Police said police have not received any information on any type of security threat.

"We hope the public remains calm and does not speculate on the matter as the police will ensure the country's safety and security.

"The police are always monitoring security scenarios and we will take stern action if any party tries to threaten public order in the country," he said in a statement on Monday (Sept 13).

The IGP was responding to an advisory issued earlier on Monday by the Japanese embassy in Kuala Lumpur to its citizens in Malaysia over possible terrorist threats in Southeast Asia.

The advisory was issued to all of its citizens in Indonesia, the Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Myanmar to stay away from religious facilities and other crowded areas.

According to Bernama, an official from the embassy said the advisory was issued following an instruction from Tokyo.

The official said currently approximately 31,000 Japanese nationals reside in Malaysia.

The warning cited intelligence reports and that there could be possible attacks on houses of worship and places of large gatherings in the region.
