POLICE issued 673 compounds to violators of the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO) yesterday, the biggest spike since the implementation of RMCO.

Senior Minister (Security Cluster), Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob (picture) said night club activities contributed the highest number of compounds to 600 individuals followed by physical distancing (127) and failure to record customer details 14 cases.

“This shows the increasing defiance of RMCO could be due to the people thinking that there is no need to adhere to standard operating procedures (SOPs),” he told a media conference on the development of RMCO.

Apart from that, 98 individuals were remanded and seven more were given bail bringing the overall number of people arrested yesterday to 778.

For border control via Operasi Benteng, Ismail Sabri said police conducted 63 roadblocks and detained a foreigner for an immigration offence.
