"We feel the people in Petaling Jaya are mostly compliant with the latest movement control order implemented," he told reporters on Tuesday.

He said there were eight compliance teams in Petaling Jaya conducting checks around the clock.

"During Hari Raya Aidilfitri, these teams will be out patrolling neighbourhoods.

"I want to also remind the public that those who organise such events face a RM25,000 compound while those caught visiting would face RM5,000 compounds," he said.
