“The standard operating procedures (SOP) for all localities placed under EMCO are similar to the ones announced previously,” he said in a statement posted on Facebook today.
He also announced that the EMCO enforced at the RMDC Sdn Bhd plantation and palm oil refinery in Bukit Koman, Raub, Pahang and Kampung Pasir Kelang in Kuala Krai, Kelantan will end as scheduled tomorrow. — Bernama
