LABUAN (Bernama): Police here have handed out RM1,000 compounds to 41 people on Sunday (Jan 17) for violating the standard operating procedures (SOP) under the movement control order.
Labuan acting police chief DSP Mohd Ibrahim Mohd Ghani said the offences committed varied and included interstate travel via illegal routes, 'hanging out' with friends on beaches and more than two people in one vehicle.
"If the violators fail to pay the compound amount, they will be tried in court. They are given two weeks to settle the amount at any Health Department offices," he told Bernama after making a visit to an MCO roadblock at Jalan Tun Mustapha here.
Ibrahim said more than 21, 000 vehicles were checked in Labuan since the MCO was reinstated.
