Ten slapped with fines in PD for violating MCO

PORT DICKSON: Ten people have been slapped with fines of RM1,000 each for violating the Covid-19 movement control order (MCO) here.

District police chief Supt Aidi Sham Mohamad said three were given compounds after they were stopped at a roadblock in Lukut past midnight and told policemen that they were out to buy cigarettes.

"Seven others were fined after they gathered at a field in Taman PD Utama to play football," he said, adding that the fines were issued over the past two days (Jan 27 and 28).

The offenders, all locals, were aged from 20 to 50.

Supt Aidi Sham said the 10 had failed to adhere to the standard operating procedure (SOP) issued by the authorities and had violated Rule 11 of the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases (Measures Within the Infected Local Areas) Regulations 2020.

The compounds were issued by members of a special task force conducting operations here and in Lukut.

He said police would continue conducting the operation to ensure the people complied with the SOP.

The offenders will have to pay their fines to the Health Department within 14 days, failing which legal action will be taken against them.
