BREAKING QUARANTINE

SIBU: Three army personnel from the Peninsular, who were supposed to undergo mandatory quarantine, were detained by police after they were found in a public place on Monday (Aug 17).

All three violated quarantine orders and were detained by police in Jalan Channel here.

District police chief ACP Stanley Jonathan Ringgit said the three men, aged between 23 and 28, were army personnel from the 3rd Battalion Royal Ranger Regiment (3RRD) Camp, Batu 14, Jalan Oya (Jalan Sibu-Bintulu).

He said a police team received information from the public, and rushed to the scene, finding the trio in a car around 3pm.

They failed to give a reasonable explanation as to why they were in a public place, while wearing the white quarantine bracelet issued by the Health Ministry.

ACP Stanley revealed that the men were from Johor, Melaka and Kelantan respectively.

“They had just arrived here and should have complied with the quarantine orders at their barracks but instead they were seen in the city centre.

“They were then taken to the Central Police Station for further action,” he said.

The trio were released on police bail after the initial investigation was conducted and the case is being investigated under Section 269 of the Penal Code and Section 22 (b) of Act 342.
