KUCHING:

Po­lice have ar­rested 28 in­di­vid­u­als across the state since Wed­nes­day for flout­ing the move­ment con­trol or­der (MCO), said Sarawak Deputy Po­lice Com­mis­sioner Datuk Dev Ku­mar.

He said those ar­rested com­prised 28 men and four women, who were nabbed be­tween mid­night Wed­nes­day and 8am yes­ter­day.

“Twenty-six of those ar­rested have been re­leased on po­lice bail while the re­main­ing two, a hus­band and wife who rammed into a po­lice road­block in Batu Niah on March 25, are still un­der lockup,” he said in a state­ment yes­ter­day.

Dev Ku­mar said Miri had the high­est num­ber of ar­rests at nine, fol­lowed by Mukah with seven.

The other ar­rests took place in Sarikei (4), two each in Kota Sa­ma­ra­han, Lawas and Bin­tulu, and one each in Kuching and Padawan, he added.

With the ex­cep­tion of the hus­band and wife, he said the 26 in­di­vid­u­als were de­tained for failing to jus­tify why they were out dur­ing the MCO.

“We (po­lice) would like to warn the peo­ple to fol­low the MCO un­til April 14,” he said, ad­ding po­lice will not com­pro­mise against any­one found to be out without a valid rea­son.
