INTERSTATE travel will no longer be allowed, stressed Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.
He said the decision was made by the Special Meeting of the National Security Council (MKN) today after many people went to the police station to seek permission to return to their hometowns as seen in Kuantan yesterday.
“Even though people are advised and reminded everyday, the PDRM (Royal Malaysia Police) reported in the morning meeting today that as many as 1,300 queued up at the Kuantan district police station yesterday to apply for permission to return to their hometowns.
“So I want to stress that the meeting made a decision that interstate travel is not permitted. There is no need to stand in a long queue because the police will not give its permission, we will not allow interstate travel any more,” he said at the daily press conference here today.
