Selangor to have 120 roadblocks during MCO

SHAH ALAM, Jan 13 — Some 120 roadblocks will be set up in Selangor during the course of the movement control order (MCO), Utusan Online reported yesterday.

Acting Selangor Police Chief Datuk Arjunaidi Mohamed said the roadblocks include the entry and exit points for district and state borders.

“However, the exact number of roadblocks has not been decided due to the compilation process and will be known within the next two days.

“The same goes for the assignment of personnel involved with the MCO, in which we are unable to disclose. The assignments are being sorted out depending on the instructions and standard operating procedure (SOP) given from time to time,” the Malay daily quoted him.

Meanwhile, Arjunaidi said there are sufficient goods in the market and that shortages should not be happening as this is the second time the MCO is being introduced.

“The government allows people to buy necessities while adhering to the underlined SOP.

“Firm action will be taken against those who disobey (the SOP) and we will not compromise on any individual who fails to follow instructions,” said Arjunaidi while urging the public to give cooperation to the authorities to assist in breaking the chain of Covid-19 infection.
