Traders found to be misusing their lots at the Ramadan bazaars in the city, will face stern action from Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL).

Kuala Lumpur mayor Datuk Seri Ahmad Phesal Talib said traders who allowed third parties to run their stalls could be issued compounds up to RM2,000.

“During our checks, we have found that often times, it is the helpers who are manning the stalls and the owners as stated in the business licence are absent.

“If we find that after three checks, the licensed owner is still not present, we will take action,” he said during a visit to the Ramadan bazaar in Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman.

He revealed that during the initial draw session for the lots, traders had been known to submit two additional names as “helpers.”

“But the truth is they have already sold their lots to these ‘helpers’.

“Although this is hard to prove, DBKL will be tightening its voting process to make it more transparent and systematic to prevent such cases,” he added.

Ahmad Phesal said DBKL along with the police, Immigration Department, State Domestic Trade, Co-operatives and Consumerism Department and the Solid Waste Management and Public Cleansing Corporation were monitoring all Ramadan bazaars.

“So far, we have issued 9,035 notices for various traffic offences, 662 notices for breach of trading rules and 99 notices to traders without licence.

“We also cancelled the licences of five traders for employing foreign workers,” he added.

This year, DBKL has registered 3,875 bazaar lots in the 11 Kuala Lumpur parliamentary constituencies.
