PETALING JAYA – “Hoi stupid idiots, sekat jalan sampai jam teruk everywhere menyusahkan orang! (Hoi stupid idiots! Roadblocks and cause traffic jam everywhere, making things difficult for people!”), a woman shouted at the police and soldiers on duty during a Covid-19 Operation roadblock at Persiaran Surian this morning.

The journalist from MalaysiaGazette who was at the location since early morning also witnessed the behaviour of that woman who was trapped in the traffic until she managed to arrive at the compound of her apartment.

The shocking incident happened around 9.30 am right after the woman arrived at her home after being caught in the traffic following huge operation by the police from the Petaling Jaya Police Headquarters towards the people who deny the Movement Control Order (MCO).

The woman who drove a white Proton X70 lives at an apartment right next to the roadblock also hit her honk continuously for half an hour while trying to escape the traffic back to her home.

Upon arriving at her apartment compound, she stopped her car at the apartment entrance before winding down her car window and shouted, “Hoi stupid idiots, sekat jalan sampai jam teruk menyusahkan orang!”

After disappearing for about 10 minutes, the woman reappeared and walked towards the police. She was seen to be arguing with the police and explained about her dissatisfaction on the roadblocks as it made things difficult for her to go out and purchase essential items.

However, the policeman on duty requested her to show her identity card and detained her on the spot. She was instructed to sit under the tent provided by the police.

She was then brought to the Damansara Police Station for further investigation under Section 7(b) and Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Act 1988 (Act 342). – MalaysiaGazette

Stricter second phase of MCO

She bursts into tears when asked to comply with MCO…


  1. She deserved to be detained and jailed for her action. She is actually the real idiot. Police and army are sacrifying their life to control the situation during MCO and instruction already being given and reminded for many times. She should actually corporate instead of being very rude by calling the police and army as an idiot.. Shame on her and her family..
