Najib to be compounded RM3,000, chicken rice shop RM10,000 for SOP violations

KUALA LUMPUR: Compound notices amounting to RM3,000 and RM10,000 respectively will be issued to former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and a chicken rice shop for flouting standard operating procedures (SOP).

Dang Wangi OCPD Asst Comm Mohamad Zainal Abdullah said the Attorney Generals Chambers had returned the investigation papers for the case, which occurred at a chicken rice shop in Bukit Bintang here on March 19.

"Yeok Wei Hao, manager of Restoran Nasi Ayam Hainan Chee Meng, will be issued a RM10,000 compound for failing to instruct Najib to scan the MySejahtera QR code or logging his entry before entering the restaurant.

"Najib will be issued two RM1,500 compounds for failing to record his temperature as well as failing to register his entry to the restaurant," he said in a statement on Thursday (May 6).

He said both parties were issued compounds for violating Rule 19 of the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Regulations.

"We urge the public to comply with the SOP put in place by the National Security Council in order to fight the spread of Covid-19," he said.

In a Facebook post on Friday (March 19), Najib admitted he did not register his details and said he was willing to pay a fine for his transgression.
