KUALA LUMPUR – No one is allowed to leave their residents and return to their hometowns for Ramadan, said Senior Minister (Security Cluster), Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

According to him, exemption is only given to those who want to return to their homes in the city after being stranded for over a month in their hometowns due to the Movement Control Order (MCO).

However, the need to register themselves with the police via the GerakMalaysia mobile application or make an appointment with the police station beginning 25 April.

“However, no final decision has been made on the matter yet.

“We are only allowing them to register in order to get clearer information.

“After obtaining the information, we will surrender them to the Ministry of Health, the police and the National Security Council for discussion.

“If they allow that (the movement from hometowns to their homes in the city), then, we will think of the SOP so that there will be no mass movement at the same time,” he said in a news conference today.

Yesterday, Ismail Sabri said that the government has heard the complaints of the people stranded in the hometowns wanting to return to their homes in the city.
