On 31 May, MITI released a statement announcing that their ministry is in charge of giving out permission letters for certain industries to operate. However, Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani has said that the PDRM will only accept confirmation letters from six ministries and certain agencies to allow workers to pass through roadblocks starting tomorrow (8 June).
He added that the letters are evidence that allows workers to move from their homes to the workplace. Those who fail to submit confirmation letters or submit false confirmation letters will be subject to stern action under the Infectious Diseases Prevention and Control Act 1988 (Act 342).
The ministries involved are as follow:
- Manufacturing and related services sector- Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI) –
- Public transport and essential goods sector- Ministry of Transport (MOT)
- Agriculture, fisheries, livestock, plantation, and commodities sectors- Ministry of Agriculture and Food Industry (MAFI), however, the confirmation letter will only be issued for smallholders
- Those with licenses under the Companies Commission of Malaysia (SSM)- MITI
- Smallholders, estates, nurseries, rubber traders, traders, and rubber manufacturers- Ministry of Plantation Industries and Commodities (MPIC)
- Rubber product manufacturers such as gloves-MITI
- Telecommunication, media, postal, courier, and broadcasting services-Ministry of Communications and Multimedia (KKMM)
- Financial institutions, insurance, and share transactions sectors- Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) and the Securities Commission (SC) respectively.
- Small traders, food stall hawkers, and food trucks-Local authority (PBT)
- Strata management, solid waste, and sanitation-MITI
Astro Awani reported that the confirmation document must be dated June 1, 2021, and parties who do not have any valid documents or show documents that have expired before that date will be instructed to turn back.
“All confirmation letters issued by agencies under the Home Ministry such as the Malaysian Immigration Department (JIM), National Registration Department (JPN), Malaysian Volunteer Department (RELA) and others will be adopted for movement permission.”
For self-employed workers such as plumbers, maintainers, and roadside hawkers who do not have an employer, a mobile application must be obtained from the police on a one-time basis within the period from 1 June to 14 June.
PDRM would give permission once for a period of two to three days to employees in sectors that were not allowed to operate but needed to go to work for specific purposes such as preparing documents, salary payment invoices, and so on. But they have to provide their employer confirmation letter as proof.
