Despite imposing 800 road blocks nationwide with the implementation of a two week lockdown under the third movement control over (MCO 3.0), members of the public are still on the roads in certain areas. Dissatisfied with the situation, Home Minister Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin has said more road blocks may be imposed based on numbers obtained since lockdown was imposed June 1.

Discussions held between Hamzah and Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Datuk Seri Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani have identified Selangor and Kuala Lumpur as the main areas of concern, reports The New Straits Times. “The increase in the number of roadblocks in Selangor and Kuala Lumpur is to limit the movement of vehicles,” said Hamzah.

In a previous report, the number of road blocks nationwide was increased from 600 to 800, involving 70,000 personnel from police and other agencies. “Besides that, some locations in Penang will also see an increase in the number of roadblocks, due to a large number of vehicles,” added Hamzah while also mentioning 903 road blocks were held under Ops Benteng as of yesterday.
