KUALA LUMPUR FEB.23: The district border is termed as the district border administration led by the District Officer and not the district border police headed by the Royal Police Malaysia (RPM).

Senior and Minister of Defence, Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said, the confusion arises when members of the public have been detained and compounded at road blocks located in the same district as movement is permitted within the same district during the Movement Control Order (MCO).

“For the public information, district border is the district border administration and not the district border police.

“Those who had been compounded in such confused cases, they could make an appeal to the Ministry of Health (MoH) following the district where the compound had been issued to them,” said Ismail in a press conference held here today.
