MCO: Army to be deployed


By S. Harrish

THE ARMY will be mobilised to help the police in implementing the movement control order (MCO) and ensure people remain at home during this critical period.

Defence Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said the army will be mobilised on Sunday.

“We’re confident that with help from the army the MCO will be implemented better. And we hope the people will continue to comply with the government’s instructions,” he said.

He said adherence to the order was increasing among the people but there were still incidents of people disregarding it by playing games outdoors, going to playground and eating in food outlets.
