Operating hours for sports-related businesses have been extended to 2am, Senior Minister for Security Ismail Sabri Yaakob says.

In a press conference today, he said the government made the decision after taking into account the problems faced by the operators of such businesses.

“Recently, I announced that operating hours for eateries and convenience stores had been extended to 2am. Sports-related businesses such as futsal, on the other hand, had to close at midnight.

“These (sports premises) operators lamented that many (players) only come in to play after maghrib or isyak prayers, but by then there are many teams waiting in line.

“On those grounds, we are now allowing operating hours to be extended to 2am,” he said.

He added that 136 people were detained for flouting recovery movement control order (RMCO) directives yesterday, including in the enhanced MCO areas in Kedah where some had left their homes without valid reason.

Sixty-four illegal migrants and a boat skipper were also arrested, with five vehicles seized.
