Police receive report on VIPs flouting MCO: Ismail Sabri

PUTRAJAYA (April 18): The police have received a report on the actions of several dignitaries who flouted the Movement Control Order (MCO) by holding gatherings as viraled on the social media yesterday.

Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said the matter had been handed over to the police for further action.

‘’No one can be above the law. A police report has been lodged, we leave it to the police to take action,’’ he told a media conference after chairing a special ministerial committee meeting on the MCO here today.

According to Malaysiakini, images of Perikatan Nasional leaders paying visits and having group meals during the MCO have been shared widely on social media in recent days, leading to much criticism.

Malaysiakini also reported that Umno vice-president Khaled Nordin has criticised Deputy Health Minister Dr Noor Azmi Ghazali for not setting a good example during the movement control order (MCO) after the latter was panned by netizens for flouting the order by visiting a tahfiz school.

“In other countries such as New Zealand, their health minister resigned because he violated their lockdown, and the public in other countries are also expressing their anger towards the UK housing minister and the South African communications minister for the same reason," Khaled said in the caption of his Instagram post today.
