2nd Infantry Division to modify control operations at Malaysia-Thailand border

Last Update: 13/02/2019

ARAU, Feb 12 (Bernama) -- The Second Infantry Division is willing to modify control operations and strategies at the border areas when the Malaysia-Thailand borders open for 24 hours for a three-month trial period from April 1.

Its Commander Major Datuk Mardzuki Muhammad said that all this while border control is usually done 24 hours, but the control strategy needs to be evaluated based on the pattern and form of the threat when the border gate is open 24 hours.

“Traditionally, border issues are, namely smuggling of commodities, prohibited controlled goods and human beings. We have no problems with the security controls because the challenges remain the same,”  Mardzuki told Bernama, today.

He was appointed Commander of the 2nd Infantry Division on Nov 9 after paying a courtesy call on Raja Perlis Tuanku Syed Sirajuddin Putra Jamalullail at Istana Arau's Blue Room, here.

Also in attendance was Raja Muda of Perlis Tuanku Syed Faizuddin Putra Jamalullail. Also present was the Commander of the 30th Infantry Brigade, Brig-Gen Hashim Aman Shah.

The Second Infantry Division is responsible for the safety and security of the region in Perlis, Kedah, Penang, Terengganu and Kelantan.

Operations area in Perlis to Bukit Kayu Hitam in Kedah was the responsibility of the police, while the other areas were under military responsibility, Mardzuki said.
