SANDAKAN: Curfew in seven districts within the Eastern Sabah Security Zone (ESSZONE) which ended on Thursday has been extended until May 6, 2017, said Sabah Commissioner of Police Datuk Ramli Din.

These districts are Tawau, Semporna, Kunak, Lahad Datu, Kinabatangan, Sandakan and Beluran.

“Curfew order series 63 ends today (Thursday) at 6 pm… and curfew series 64 will begin tomorrow (Friday) at 6 pm,” he said at a press conference at the police headquarters in Sandakan on Thursday.

He said the curfew has been extended because it was effective in curbing abductions and violence in the east coast of Sabah.

He said it will be continued until safety and security are totally assured.

“This year, there have been no cases of violence or kidnapping in the area and this effort will be continued until safety and security have been assured.”

On another related development, Ramli will review and give further instructions on the curfew order for areas three nautical miles from the coast.

He said he will consider ordering the security forces not to take action on fishermen going further than three nautical miles from the coast during curfew hours.
