KOTA KINABALU: Two restaurant operators were fined for allowing patrons to dine at their eateries, thus breaching rules under the movement control order.
Both cases happened on Friday.
In the first incident, a 58-year-old man was issued a compound when policemen were doing their routine checks and inspections on standard operating procedure (SOP) compliance in Beaufort, said the district’s OCPD Deputy Supt Azmir Abd Razak.
In the second case, a 36-year-old woman was found to have allowed people to eat and drink inside her restaurant in Kg Tinambak, Kuala Penyu.
“There were several patrons in the restaurant at the time of the incident, ” he said.
It is learnt that the patrons had chipped in to pay the fine of RM1,000 for the restaurant owners in both cases.
DSP Azmir reminded all business operators to comply with the SOP during this MCO period, which is in effect until Jan 26.
