Outlets with restaurant, liquor licences may open, says KL mayor


KUALA LUMPUR: Outlets with restaurant and liquor licences allowed to operate during the conditional movement control order (MCO), says city mayor Datuk Nor Hisham Ahmad Dahlan (pic).

“As long as these businesses have the necessary approvals such as a licence to serve food from Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) and a licence to sell liquor from the Customs Department, they can be open for business.

“But of course, these businesses must adhere to the restrictions stated under the conditional MCO, ” he said.

He added that that there was no ban on alcohol being served in these premises.

However, he said outlets with an entertainment licence such as pubs, bars and nightclubs would have to remain closed.

Nor Hisham was clarifying a statement by Federal Territories Minister Tan Sri Annuar Musa

that businesses that sell liquor besides food, would not be allowed to operate for the time being.

Annuar on Monday said pubs that sell liquor were in the same category as karaoke and other entertainment centres.

As part of the conditional MCO, DBKL has stated that restaurants, food courts, hawker centres, roadside stalls, food trucks, mobile stalls, temporary roadside stalls were allowed to operate from 7am to 10pm.

However, cinemas, karaoke centres, theme parks, museums, busking and entertainment centres are still not allowed to operate.
