May 27, 2020, 12:58 PM

The Office of The Inspector General Of Police says it will continue to firmly enforce all the provisions of the Emergency Powers Regulations (EPR), following the extension of the State Of Public Emergency by His Excellency President Adama Barrow for a further 21 days period.

“It could be recalled that the Emergency Powers Regulations came into effect as measures to prevent, control and protect the country from the Covid-19 virus after The World Health Organisation declared it a global pandemic, the office reminds.

“In this regard, the public is strictly advised to comply with the social distancing regulations and desist from all forms of social gatherings and religious congregations that violate the Emergency Regulations and potentially endanger the lives of citizens.”

“The public is further informed that enforcement operations are currently ongoing and will be further strengthened in accordance with the law.”

“Therefore, The Office of The Inspector General urges all to comply and cooperate fully with law enforcement officers, so together we can defeat the Covid-19 pandemic.”
