JOHOR BARU: Two pharmacies in Kulai and Johor Baru were issued compounds after they were found selling face masks at higher prices than permitted.

Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry Johor director Mohd Hairul Anuar Bohro said both pharmacies committed an offence under Section 11 of the Price Control and Anti-Profiteering Act 2011.

He said the pharmacy in Kulai was issued a RM500 compound on Jan 30, while the one here was issued a RM10,000 compound yesterday.

Mohd Hairul said five types of face masks had been set as controlled items and any business premises found selling them at higher prices would face action. — Bernama
