No plans to impose curfew for those under-18s for now
Mar 14, 2019
The government has decided not impose a nationwide curfew for under-18s for now.
Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr. Wan Azizah Wan Ismail says the Cabinet said the proposal is unsuitable.
This is because of several factors, including a lack of parental supervision because some parents hold two jobs and are not home to monitor their kids.
However, the government has not ruled out imposing a curfew at certain hot spots, as a pilot project.

The Attorney-General has rejected Vietnam's request to free its citizen accused of murdering Kim Jong-nam, the half-brother of North Korea's leader.
Vietnam's request came after an Indonesian woman, who had been accused along with the Vietnamese, was freed.
Both of them were charged with killing Jong-nam by smearing his face with a banned chemical weapon at KLIA2 two years ago.
The Vietnamese's trial will resume next month.
