No convoy activities tomorrow

Date:

KUCHING: The public, especially those from the motoring clubs or groups, are advised to refrain from holding any convoy activities in conjunction with the National Day celebration tomorrow (Aug 31).

Sarawak Police Commissioner, Datuk Aidi Ismail said this in view of the current Covid-19 pandemic situation in Sarawak, particularly in the Kuching district.

“As the Covid-19 pandemic is still spreading in Sarawak, I advise that no celebrations and marches or convoys be held during the Independence Day celebrations tomorrow (Aug 31),” he told.

To ensure that the standard operating procedures (SOPs) to curb the transmission of Covid-19 are adhered to, the Sarawak Traffic Police Department has launched ‘Ops Khas Ambang Merdeka 2021’ from Aug 28 until Sept 1.

He said the operations was being carried out in all districts in the state.

“Its main focus is on road users who commit offences that can contribute to the occurrence of road accidents such as speeding, driving under the influence of alcohol, illegal racing and all motorcycle-related offences.

“Aside from that, the police will also conduct integrated operations with other enforcement agencies to enforce the rules and ensure compliance with SOPs,” Aidi said.

He advised the public to always adhere to all instructions and SOPs set by the government.

The public are urged to be cautious and continue practising personal hygiene among their families and communities to curb the Covid-19 transmission chain.
