PUTRAJAYA, May 15 — Any individual attempting to travel across states without permission can be sentenced under the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Act 1988 (Act 342), said Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.
He said roadblocks have been set up at toll plazas throughout the country to prevent interstate travel.
“Roadblocks have been set up at toll plazas to prevent interstate travel and as I have previously said, the interstate travel which is allowed was only for four days through applications on the Gerak Malaysia application.
“After this (travel permitted through the Gerak Malaysia application) period, the situation goes back to normal where interstate travel is not allowed unless with police permission. This means that anyone who travels across states without police permission will definitely face action,” he said in the daily press conference on the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) here today.
Ismail Sabri said police can still issue compounds or take these people to court.
