Raven Kumar would be chairing a meeting with tourism industry players in Mersing to discuss the new SOP. "We will have the meeting tomorrow to discuss further the SOP with industry players and all the agencies involved. Violent crime has risen across the United States over the pandemic, and New York City has been no exception. "Following that, an announcement with more details is expected to be made by the state executive councillor," he said when met by reporters after attending a visit by the Melaka tourism, heritage, and culture committee chairman Datuk Muhammad Jailani Khamis at Johor Baru Sentral here on Friday (April 15). He said that the tour boats in Mersing had been receiving an increase in bookings from the public following the reopening of the border. While the city remains one of the safest in the country and far less dangerous than it was in the 1990s, when Adams was rising through the New York City Police Department's ranks, the new mayor has revived some of the tough-on-crime policing tactics associated with that era under the Republican mayor Rudy Giuliani.

Last Thursday (April 7), Johor Ruler Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar called for all diving activities off Mersing to be banned temporarily, following the disappearance of four foreign divers off Mersing islands. To civil rights groups alarmed that police might again disproportionately target poor, Black and Latino New Yorkers, Adams has pointed to his own experiences with police brutality growing up as a Black man in Brooklyn's poorest corners. The Sultan issued the decree after the incident took place off Pulau Tokong Sanggul, near Pulau Sibu on Wednesday (April 6). "I want all diving activities in the waters off Mersing to be temporarily halted until we know for sure what happened to the unfortunate divers."To revitalize our city New Yorkers need to feel safe and secure that our kids can play without getting hit by a stray bullet. "We cannot allow diving to continue if safety measures are compromised. "Diving rules and regulations must also be reviewed in their entirety before these activities can be allowed to resume," His Majesty said. 1, 363 people have been shot in the city as of last week, up about 9% from the same period last year..

Sultan Ibrahim added that the reviews must be made public once they are completed to restore public and tourist confidence Three of the four divers had been found safe between April 7 and 8 while one remains missing and presumed to be dead by his father, who was also one of the divers involved in the tragedy.
