No police permit needed to cross district, state to send children to school — Ismail Sabri

KUALA LUMPUR (Feb 25): Parents who have to cross district or state lines to send their children to school are not required to first obtain permission from the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM).

Senior Minister (Security) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said these parents should instead only show a letter issued by the school allowing them to do so, at the police roadblock.

"For example, if the students are returning to their hostel, the teachers could have issued them a letter, allowing them to cross district or state,” he said at a news conference on the Movement Control Order (MCO) developments today.

Ismail Sabri said the matter had been discussed with the PDRM top officers and had also been informed to the police contingents nationwide.
