Many still flouting RMCO directives – Ismail Sabri


DESPITE the Movement Control Order (MCO) being in place for 155 days, 71 of which have been under the more flexible Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO), many individuals continue to defy directives.

Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob (picture) said until yesterday, 136 individuals were compounded while four more were remanded, including 96 who were involved in activities that hampered physical distancing.

“Six more were for not wearing face masks, others were for failing to record details of visits, failing to settle quarantine centre payments and also for not wearing disposable aprons,” he said in a statement today.

Ismail, who is also Defence Minister, said the Compliance Task Force headed by the police made 67,493 inspections yesterday.

A total of 4,981 compliance teams involving 17,401 personnel monitored 4,229 supermarkets; 5,473 restaurants; 1,747 hawkers; 1,781 factories; 3,842 banks and 1,063 government offices.
