13/09/2021 11:29 PM

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 13 -- The Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) has not detected or received any information about security threats against any house of worship or public areas in the country, said Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani.

Based on the current situation, he assured the public that the country’s security and public order were under control and urged them not to be concerned about or speculate on the advisory issued by the Japanese embassy to its citizens in Malaysia.

"PDRM will always monitor the current security scenario and ensure the safety of the country. Checks will be stepped up to maintain public order.

“Stern action will also be taken against any party who tries to threaten the security and harmony of the country,” he said in a statement today.

Bernama reported today that the Japanese embassy here confirmed that it had issued the advisory to Japanese nationals in Malaysia regarding the possibility of a terrorist threat in Southeast Asia.

According to media reports, the Japanese Foreign Ministry had advised its citizens in Indonesia, the Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Myanmar to avoid being near places of worship and other crowded areas.

The advisory quoted intelligence reports regarding the possibility of an attack on places of worship and public areas with large gatherings in the region.

There are about 31,000 Japanese living in Malaysia.
