PDRM sets up nationwide roadblock to raise its ‘omnipresence’ level

NewsPDRM sets up nationwide roadblock to raise its 'omnipresence' level

While Malaysians are waiting anxiously for the next federal government to form, some Internet users had been spreading hate speech on social media towards the royal family, races, and religions, in an attempt to incite racial tension.

To prevent the possibility of a riot, PDRM declared that they will be setting up roadblocks across the country to reduce crime by raising its ‘omnipresence’ level.

In a statement, inspector-general of police (IGP) Tan Sri Acryl Sani Haji Abdullah Sani said the roadblocks will start on 22 November and will last until ‘a certain period of time’.

However, he said that there will be no road blocks during the day and peak hours.

“Everyone is urged to cooperate by following the instructions of the personnel when going through roadblocks, especially during off-peak time,” the IGP said.

Meanwhile, the police chief also assured that citizens do not have to be worried in carrying out their daily routine because PDRM ‘will ensure that the security level is controllable’.

Stop sharing inciteful comments

Following the 15th General Election (GE15) results, there has been a huge drama in the country, with PH and PN claiming that they have the magic numbers to form the next federal government.

However, the struggle continues as BN, the key kingmaker here, refuses to form a unity government with both PH and PN and chooses to stay as the Opposition.

Meanwhile, the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) has also warned the people to not disseminating hate comments, particularly towards the royal family, races, and religions (3R), or risk fines and/or even jail time.
