Military troops may be mobilised to ensure compliance of movement control order

PUTRAJAYA: Military troops may be mobilised if the people’s level of compliance with the Movement Control Order introduced by the government to contain the spread of COVID-19, is deemed unsatisfactory.

Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said this was among the proposals brought up at the meeting of the newly-set up Special Ministerial Committee on the implementation of the order.

However, Ismail Sabri who is also Defence Minister, said the government, as of now, is fully confident that the police were capable of enforcing the order.
