No Worker Climbs Fence To Escape Top Glove Emco Police
Police have clarified that no worker at the Top Glove hostel in Meru, Klang, which is under the enhanced movement control order (MCO), has climbed the fence to get out of the area.
A Selangor police Special Covid-19 spokesperson Muhammad Yazid Muhammad Yew said the viral picture on social media showing male workers climbing the hostel fence was not in order to get out as claimed but they were actually re-entering the place to be quarantined.
“An investigation found out that the fence climbing incident which went viral took place on the first day of the enhanced MCO at the Top Glove’s workers’ hostel on Nov 17 before the Covid-19 screening was implemented.
“They climbed the fence as it was an easy way to re-enter the hostel because the barbed wire fences were being put up by the security personnel on duty,” he told a media conference today.
Muhammad Yazid said further investigation also found that several male workers in the viral photo had been identified and they were currently undergoing quarantine at the hostel until to date.
As such, he said the allegation on social media that the workers at the Top Glove hostel ran away from screening tests was not true, in fact, no report concerning such an issue was received after the picture went viral since several days ago.
He added that the security control at the enhanced MCO was proceeding smoothly and the workers at the hostel co-operated when the Covid-19 screening test was implemented.
Muhammad Yazid also warned the public against disseminating false information which could disrupt public order.
The enhanced MCO at the Top Glove workers’ hostel was enforced on Nov 17 until next Monday following an increase in positive Covid-19 positive cases involving the Teratai Cluster.
