KUALA LUMPUR, May 31 — Perak was the state with the most compounds issued for violations of the conditional movement control order (CMCO), said Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

“The state with the highest number of compounds for interstate border crossing attempt is Perak with 42, Selangor 32, Penang and Johor 24 compounds.

“So it looks like there are those who still tried to cross the interstate borders on the seventh and eighth day of Hari Raya Aidilfitri,” Ismail Sabri said.

He added that a total of 475 compounds were issued yesterday by the police.

Ismail Sabri said that the CMCO monitoring task force led by the Royal Malaysia Police (RMP), had conducted 72,258 checks yesterday.

The task force had checked 5,182 shops, 5,525 restaurants, 641 traders, 1,267 factories as well as 4,089 banks and 616 construction sites.

The authorities also vetted 22,253 private vehicles as well as 1,555 public transportation.

“Yesterday, the RMP detained 158 individuals for violating the CMCO order, and of this number, 157 individuals were remanded, while one individual was given police bail,” Ismail Sabri added.
