KUALA TERENGGANU: A beauty salon owner who operated a clinic and conducted aesthestic medical procedures without valid registration was slapped with an RM100,000 fine by the Sessions Court here.
Judge Azman Mustapha also ordered Farabi Ahmad Mohd Amin, 31, the owner of Raisya Medispa, to be jailed for one year should he fail to pay the fine.
He was found to have provided aesthetic services at the clinic located at the salon in Jalan Besar Sura Gate, Dungun, in April 2017.
The Terengganu Health Department carried out a raid on the premises on April 13, 2017, and found that it was providing aesthetic medical services.
But Farabi Ahmad could not produce a certificate of registration for the clinic or certificates to verify that he was a qualified medical practitioner.
He was charged under Section 4(1) of the Private Healthcare Facilities and Services Act 1998 (Act 586), which is punishable under Section 5(1)(a)(i) of the same Act with a fine of up to RM300,000 or six years’ jail or both.
