Summonses will be imposed on those caught attempting to travel interstate to return to their villages to celebrate Ramadan, says Bukit Aman Crime Prevention and Community Safety Department director Zainal Abidin Kasim.
As such, he said more stringent checks will be conducted at all roadblocks at state borders and only those authorised to travel interstate will be allowed to do so.
“I foresee that the roads and highways will be busy this weekend as many will be travelling to celebrate Ramadan in their hometowns as they could not do so last year because of the movement control order.
“They will try all possible means to travel interstate so if they are caught this time, no more advice will be given… the police will take action straight away,” he told reporters after an event today.
Abidin also said more roadblocks would be mounted from time to time, depending on the number of daily Covid-19 cases reported.
So far, he said 30 to 35 roadblocks were being mounted at every exit and entry point as well as at state borders nationwide as and when necessary.
