Malaysia’s SOP has been lauded internationally because it ensures that during a disaster, there is no conflict between the army and the police and there is only one chief of operations, who also controls all the government agencies.
“And, unlike other countries, once an area is cordoned off as a disaster area here, even the politicians were kept away from the area, unless authorised,” he said.
Ha, ha! Keep the damn politicians out! Sounds like a plan.
