Seberang Perai Utara district police chief ACP Noorzainy Mohd Noor said workers travelling between the two states would only need to show their work pass and letter from their employer if they are stopped at roadblocks located at the states’ borders.
“Please take note that there is no need (for workers) to obtain such permission from the police to cross the state borders, as long as they show their work pass and letter from their employer,” he said here yesterday.
He was clarifying a viral message claiming workers must still obtain a police permit to cross the states’ borders while some netizens also claimed that they were told to turn back at roadblocks for not having an inter-state travel permit.
“In the message, the writer claimed that they were asked to turn back at a roadblock mounted at the Sungai Dua Toll Plaza (southbound), however, there was no such roadblock at the location,” he explained.
He added that the police has currently mounted three roadblocks along the Penang-Kedah border, located at Kampung Jambatan Merdeka, Pinang Tunggal and Permatang Bendahari.
