Malaysian police ready for border re-opening, says chief

KUALA LUMPUR (CNA) – All elements of the Malaysian police force are fully prepared for the re-opening of the country’s borders on April 1, with security and surveillance stepped up, said Inspector-General of Police Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani.

He said the General Operations Force has been deployed to the country’s borders, both in the peninsula as well as in Sabah and Sarawak, to ensure public security.

“We are ready to face any eventuality when the borders re-open on April 1,” he was quoted as saying by the Star.

Acryl Sani was speaking at the sidelines of the Defence Service Asia and the National Security Asia exhibitions in Kuala Lumpur.

He said that as Malaysia enters the Transition to Endemic stage, the country is returning to a pre-pandemic situation and he hoped that the re-opening of borders would create more convenience for Malaysians.
