SEVERAL individuals were slapped with summonses for flouting the lockdown standard operating procedure in a joint enforcement operation by Subang Jaya City Council (MBSJ) and the police.
“A group of nine MBSJ enforcement officers and five policemen from the Serdang district police headquarters held a joint operation on June 17 to check on compliance with lockdown SOP at the Pasar Borong Selangor and Putrawalk (PP25) area in Seri Kembangan,” MBSJ Corporate and Strategic Management Department deputy director Azfarizal Abdul Rashid said in a statement.
“The police issued five summonses, with fines ranging between RM1,500 and RM5,000, to people who were not wearing face masks properly or didn’t wear face masks at all.
“MBSJ issued four compound notices to several wholesale market traders and business operators in Putrawalk for not having valid business licences or displaying advertising boards without licences.”
A similar joint operation involving a total of 21 MBSJ officers and policemen was held in industrial areas in Jalan Subang 3 dan Jalan TP 7/6, Subang Jaya.
“Sixteen compound notices were issued under the Trade, Business and Industry Licensing Bylaw, as a number of factories in these two areas did not have valid MBSJ licences.
“MBSJ will continue periodic monitoring of compliance with lockdown SOP and council regulations throughout the lockdown period,” added Azfarizal.
