SIBU: Fifty-four people comprising 28 men and 26 women were nabbed for violating recovery movement control order (MCO) standard operating procedures (SOPs) at a sundry shop and a bistro here Friday (July 31).

The 32-year-old manageress of the two shops was among those compounded.

Sibu Deputy OCPD Supt Collin Babat said compounds of RM1,000 were later issued to all of them under Regulation 10 of the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases (Measures Within Infected Local Areas) Regulations 2020.

"They will have to settle the fines within two weeks," he said.

Supt Collin said in the raid conducted at 10.10pm on July 31, the police recovery MCO enforcement team found the 54 people, aged between 16 and 45, who were customers of the two shops defying the SOPs.

He added that the raid on the bistro was the second time. The first one was on July 21 where the manageress and three customers of the bistro were fined RM1,000 for similar offences.

Supt Collin said two men, aged 24 and 30, were also remanded for failing to produce personal identification documents under Section 25(1) of the National Registration Act 1990.
