SIBU: A hawker has been fined RM1,000 for violating the movement control order by selling durians by the roadside on Monday (Jan 18).
Sibu OCPD Asst Comm Stanley Jonathan Ringgit said the 56-year-old was compounded by the Sibu district MCO monitoring team led by Sibu Crime Prevention and Community Safety Division (JPJKK) Deputy Supt Ariffin Bahar in Kampung Hilir.
"While monitoring the area, the team found that the man was selling durians by the roadside," he said.
He said that a MCO directive has been issued earlier stating that roadside selling activities are also not allowed.
The compound was issued to the durian hawker for committing an offence under Regulation 3, Infectious Diseases Regulations (PPPPB) 2021 for doing business in prohibited places.
"The man has been compounded and referred to the Health Ministry to settle the RM1,000 compound within 14 days," he added.
