PUTRAJAYA, April 15, 2020 - Movement control order (MCO) violators will now be arrested and charged in court instead of being issued a compound notice, says Senior Minister, Dato Sri' Ismail Sabri Yaakob.
He said that this was because a section of Malaysians were still not adhering to the MCO.
As of Wednesday, the total number of cumulative arrests of the MCO was 11,017 individuals.
He also informed that the PDRM together with the Malaysian Armed Forces (MAF) had set up 813 roadblocks nationwide, involving inspections of 558,548 vehicles.
He said the increase indicated that there were still many vehicles going on during the implementation of the MCO.
