KLANG – Those under the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) in Klang need to apply for the permission to travel inter-district from the police throughout the CMCO period.
The Selangor District Police Chief Datuk Noor Azam Jamaludin said that the approval or confirmation letter from employers are insufficient to ensure that they are under the essential services.
“Approval letter from the employers show who they work for and if they are under essential services or not.
“If they want to leave the area, they need to get the approval from us and show us proofs that they are on essential services duties,” he said during a roadblock at Persiaran Pegaga, Bukit Tinggi Klang, last night.
Earlier, the South Klang District Police Chief, Assistant Commissioner Shamsul Amar Ramli said in a statement that two roadblocks and road closures will be set-up in Klang.
Among the roadblocks are at Persiaran Pegaga in Bukit Tinggi Klang and Jalan Kim Chuan. Meanwhile, road closure involved Jalan Batu Unjur 9.
Roadblocks are also set up at Taman Sri Andalas Klang involving the entrance and exit of Jalan Tun Dr Ismail. Meanwhile, the roads in front of the Ar-Rahimiah Mosque, Jalan Sri Siantan, Jalan Sri Siantan 41 and Jalan Sri Damak 53 will be closed.
To enable the public within the range of roadblocks to make inter-district travels, the police had also set up special booths near the movement control areas.
“We want to make things easy for the people here. No need to go to the police station.
“We have the service here (roadblocks). It’s pointless to go to the police station in mass.
“We want to facilitate things. We have also uploaded the approval forms at our Facebook page where the people can download them,” he said. –MalaysiaGazette
