MIRI: Miri police have launched operations to enforce the recovery movement control order (RMCO) to curb the spread of the Covid-19.

Miri police chief ACP Hakemal Hawari, said they had set up roadblocks at some areas in the district to curb unnecessary movements during the period.

The police will inspect those who fail to follow the instruction to stay home and advise those working in essential services classified by the National Security Council to follow the standard operating procedures (SOPs), he said.

ACP Hawari added that stern action would be taken against those who failed to follow the 14-day RMCO.

“To those intending to travel within RMCO areas between districts (inter-districts), you are required to apply for special permits from the police ,” he said.

These permits can be obtained at any police stations in Miri,  Hakemal added.

On Monday, Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin announced a 14-day conditional CMCO and recovery movement control order (RMCO).

Six states are being placed under CMCO namely Pahang, Perak, Negeri Sembilan, Kedah, Terengganu and Kelantan, while Sarawak and Perlis are under the recovery MCO.
