Special Exception For Sectors Forbidden To Operate

For economic sectors that are NOT ALLOWED to operate during the MCO 3.0 full lockdown, a special exception may be made by the police for the purpose of going to the office to prepare documents, payslips and so on.

PDRM may issue one-off exceptions for 2-3 days only. An employer’s letter must be submitted as evidence.

Legal Firms

Legal firms may operate with up to 20% employee attendance, with an authorisation letter from the Legal Affairs Department of the Prime Minister’s Department (JPM) through the MITI CIMS 3.0 (COVID-19 Intelligent Management System).

This exception is limited to legal firms who have been appointed by companies categorised as Essential Services and therefore allowed to operate during the MCO 3.0 full lockdown.

Lawyers who need to represent their clients in court for new cases under the Remand Section 117 of the Criminal Procedure Code, must present a printed document or a letter from their legal firm at the police roadblock.

Legal aid lawyers will need to show the rotating roster list at the police roadblock.
