KUCHING, May 15: Malaysian Armed Forces (MAF) General Tan Sri Hasbullah Mohd Nawawi urged the public to obey the CMCO (Conditional Movement Control Order) so that the spread of Covid-19 can be stopped.

“We hope the public will follow the rules during this CMCO 100 per cent and the public should have suited themselves to the new lifestyle during the MCO,” Hasbullah said at the Snap Check duty in front of Kuching International Airport on Friday evening.

“We also hope that the public will be our eyes and ears if they have any information on any illegal immigrants (PATI), items smuggling, and others as it is also one of the ways to stop the spreading of the Covid-19,” he added.

According to Hasbullah, MAF had enforced the borders Malaysia shares with Kalimantan and Brunei by assigning more personnel to patrol the borders.


“We have achieved 21 successes in this Movement Control Order (MCO) by tightening the patrol at the borders especially the side road at Kalimantan to Sarawak border,” He added.

He also said that the army will still be fully committed in the patrols and duties even during the coming Gawai Dayak and Hari Raya festivals to prevent the spread of the virus.—DayakDaily
