PETALING JAYA: Those who continue to defy the movement control order (MCO) must now pay a RM1,000 fine within two weeks of the compound being issued.
Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said 95 compound notices were issued on Wednesday (April 8).
"Those served with compound notices are given two weeks to pay the fine, failing which they will be hauled to court," he said on Thursday (April 9).
He said offenders could pay the fine at the nearest district health office or at police stations.
Although the number of people defying the order had dropped by 34% on Wednesday compared to the previous day, he said stern action would continue to be taken until everyone complied with the order.
"So far, the percentage of compliance is 97%. We still have 3% who continue to defy," he said.
As of Wednesday, a total of 7,205 people had been nabbed since the MCO was imposed on March 18.
Ismail, who is also the Defence Minister, said the Road Transport Department would deploy personnel to man roadblocks together with the police.
