KUALA LUMPUR: The RM10,000 compound under the Emergency (Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases) (Amendment) Ordinance 2021 applies to all categories of the movement control order, says Senior Minister (Security) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.
This means those in MCO, conditional MCO and recovery MCO areas could be issued a compound of RM10,000 if they violated the SOP.
“But (the public) should understand, the police action (issuing the compound) is based on the Emergency Ordinance and it is for the safety of the public, ” he said at the groundbreaking ceremony for the One Member One House project at Satria Residensi, Sungai Besi.
He reiterated that the police did not have the power to reduce the amount of the compound. Those who received it could appeal to the district health office. — Bernama
