TUMPAT: There has been no smuggling and encroachment activities along Sungai Golok on the Malaysia-Thailand border so far during the two-week movement control order (MCO) period.

General Operations Force (GOF) Seventh Battalion commanding officer Supt Azhari Nusi said this was the result of GOF’s joint efforts with other enforcement agencies to tighten control to ensure the country’s waters were safe.

“Our patrol operations are conducted with the marine police during the MCO and we found that there was no cross-border movements or trafficking,” he told reporters here today.

Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin announced that Malaysia would be placed under a nationwide movement control order from March 18 to 31 to curb the Covid-19 outbreak. — Bernama
