Organiser of frozen chicken giveaway issued compound for breaching SOP

PUTRAJAYA: The organiser of a free frozen chicken giveaway has been issued a compound for breaching the standard operating procedure (SOP).

Putrajaya OCPD Asst Comm Mohd Fadzil Ali (pic) said the police received information on the event which was held recently and told the organiser such an event did not have police approval as Putrajaya is under the movement control order.

"The programme was conducted via a drive-through system on a first-come, first-served concept. It caused traffic congestion due to the attendance of many people at the location," he said when contacted on Saturday (Jan 16).

ACP Mohd Fadzil said checks by police revealed that the programme participants and organiser failed to practise physical distancing.

"We will not compromise with any individual in enforcing the law throughout the MCO and we advise the public to adhere to the SOP as our main goal is to stop the spread of Covid-19," he added.

He urged those with information or inquiries to contact the Kuala Lumpur police hotline at 03-21159999 or any nearest police station.
