Shopkeeper in Sabah fined for not adhering to MCO guidelines

KOTA KINABALU: A shop operator in Beaufort district was fined for not abiding by the standard operating procedure (SOP) of the recovery movement control order (MCO).

The man, 43, was found to have not prepared a temperature scanner at his premises when officials went to check around 11am on Wednesday (July 22).

Beaufort OCPD Deputy Supt Azmir Razak said scanners were needed to determine the temperature of customers entering premises.

“We will not compromise on these SOPs and will continue to have daily checks and patrols to ensure that the recovery MCO is abided by, ” he said.

In Kota Kinabalu, OCPD Asst Comm Habibi Majinji also said they would start arresting and issuing compounds to offenders due to the low level of compliance among the public.

He said the teams in charge of this in all nine police stations within the district would be reactivated.

He said this after visiting the reopening of primary schools around the city on Wednesday.
