KUALA LUMPUR (Sept 15): Seven localities with five of them in Sabah and one each in Pahang and Kelantan will be placed under the Enhanced Movement Control Order (EMCO) from Sept 16 to 29, according to the National Security Council (MKN).

MKN National Security director-general Datuk Rodzi Md Saad, in a statement yesterday, said the localities involved in Sabah are in Kota Marudu, Keningau, Ranau and Telupid.

“In Kota Marudu two localities are affected. They are Kampung Kirangawan Darat, Tengah and Pinatau. The other three localities to be placed under EMCO are Kampung Nuntunan Apin-Apin in Keningau, Kampung Lungkidau in Ranau and Perumahan Pekerja Ladang Bousted Ruku-Ruku in Telupid,” he said.

Also affected by the EMCO are Kampung Tementong, Mukim Cheka Satu in Lipis, Pahang and Kampung Bahagia, Mukim Batu Mengkebang in Kuala Krai, Kelantan.

He said the standard operating procedure (SOP) for all the affected localities is the same as that previously announced.

He said the EMCO in two localities in the Bebar district in Pekan, Pahang, namely Kampung Badong Dalam and Kampung Permatang Durian, which was supposed to end today, had been extended until Sept 29.
