KUALA LUMPUR, June 30 — Two Customs, Immigration, Quarantine and Security complexes will be opened in the north to monitor the flow of commercial traffic, said Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

He said the special ministerial meeting on implementing the movement control order has selected Padang Besar in Perlis and Durian Burung in Kedah as the sites of the complexes.

“The complexes will only be for commercial trade and cargo vehicles. All the other agencies involved have also been informed of the meeting’s decision for further action,” Ismail said in a statement.

Separately, the minister also said the meeting has agreed to exempt Malaysians living in Singapore and who wish to return from having to apply for the MyPass permit at the Malaysian High Commission in the island-state.

Yesterday the police-led compliance task force conducted 67,047 inspections to monitor and enforce public adherence over the recovery movement control order (RMCO).
