The Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) has issued a warning to the public who attempt to cross state borders without the proper travel documents during the Ramadan period. No leniency will be showed and a compound will be issued immediately.
Bukit Aman Crime Prevention and Community Safety Department director, Zainal Abidin Kasim, told Harian Metro that PDRM is getting ready for the influx of travellers who will attempt to return to their hometown in the coming festive period.
They will be on the lookout for travellers who do not have complete documents and authorisation to travel interstate. Only those with both will be allowed to cross the borders.
He also added that more roadblocks will be mounted at state borders, but the number of roadblocks will depend on the number of daily Covid-19 cases. So far, PDRM has set up about 35 roadblocks at every state exit and entry point nationwide.
And to make matters more difficult, PDRM is now requiring anybody who wants to apply for the travel permit to provide proof of activity for each day that you have applied for.
For example, if you intend to cross states for a total of 3 days, you will need to share the proof of activity for all 3 days.
The new requirement was issued after the controversy involving a certain Instafamous celebrity. Noor Neelofa Mohd Noor is now under scrutiny after it became apparent that she was misusing her cross-country permit to Langkawi for her honeymoon rather than for work purposes as stated.
There isn’t a time in memory that doesn’t involve staring at cars. After discovering the excitement of watching Schumacher vs Hakkinen, Formula 1 became a major part of life. The love for cars and F1 ultimately led to a job with CAR Magazine. The untimely death of the magazine meant a hiatus from cars at lifestyle women’s magazine Marie Claire before another opportunity came knocking again.
