KUALA LUMPUR: Dang Wangi police issued a total of RM88,000 worth of compounds for conditional MCO violations after checking several entertainment outlets here.

Dang Wangi OCPD Asst Comm Mohamad Zainal Abdullah said between Nov 21 and 27, they checked five entertainment outlets around the Dang Wangi area.

"We checked 93 locals and 77 foreigners during our visits.

"Checks on the outlets' entertainment licences also revealed that they all had valid licenses issued by Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL)," he said on Saturday (Nov 28).

He said they issued compounds to 88 locals for violations of Rule 11 of the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Regulations 2020.

"We also arrested 10 foreigners for not having proper documentation while 67 others were detained for suspicion of having fake travel documents," he said.

ACP Zainal warned the public, foreigners and premises owners to adhere to the conditional MCO.

He said failure to obey the orders could lead to action under the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Regulations 2020 and other available laws.
