Kelantan rojak seller gets RM50,000 compound, says stall closed, was cooking food for kids

PETALING JAYA: After a burger seller was slapped with a RM50,000 compound for extending his business hours, a rojak seller in Kota Baru now claims to have received a similar fine.

Berita Harian reported Tuesday (April 27) that Mohd Azizi Mohd Nor, 42, had been issued the compound two days ago at Kampung Chekok Tengah.

"I was shocked when I saw the amount. To even get RM100 every night selling rojak is hard because I am only operating in a kampung area.

"When the police came, my shop was already closed at 10pm, with most of the lights turned off. Only the kitchen was still open because my wife and I were still cleaning up," he said, adding that at the time, he was cooking food for his children.

He lamented that even if the compound was reduced to RM10,000, it would still be too expensive and that he would rather choose prison.

"This is the first time I've been issued a compound, but it was already RM50,000. I work as a mechanic besides helping my wife sell noodles on regular days," he said.

Kelantan police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Shafien Mamat told the daily that the police would call back three stall operators, including the rojak seller, to be offered new compounds according to the stated guidelines.
