KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 12 — Police will enforce roadblocks in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya following instructions to implement the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) from Oct 14.
Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani said the roadblocks would be set up at several locations in the three states involved starting midnight tomorrow.
“The roadblocks will be mounted in the same way as before (during the MCO in early March). Instructions for the deployment of police officers to the roadblock locations will be arranged by the Kuala Lumpur Police Chief and Selangor Police Chief,” he told Bernama.
Meanwhile, Chief of Defence Force Gen Tan Sri Affendi Buang said the Malaysian Armed Forces (MAF) would work with the police in mounting the roadblocks as before.
“MAF and the police will do as they did before,” he said briefly.
