George Town Central police chief Inspector Syazwan Hasmi Shahrun said the police joined personnel from Penang Island City Council licensing department, Rela and Civil Defence Force to carry out the checks.

“Those who did not follow the SOP were given advice to adhere to the conditions,” said Insp Syazwan to newsmen at Campbell Street on Monday.

“We did not issue any summonses during the checks as there were more than 95% compliance to date on the SOP,” he said.
