800+ people arrested at roadblocks till date
The Star reported that the minister informed, so far there have been 828 people who were arrested on Sunday at roadblocks and during police patrols.
“The number of people arrested for breaking the MCO is increasing, and this is because the police are now taking more serious action,” Ismail Sabri said at a press conference yesterday.
“A total of 67,774 police, army, Rela and Malaysian Civil Defence Force officers have been deployed so far.We have more officers in reserve, and we will increase the number from time to time if deemed necessary.”
