PORT DICKSON: A local film director was slapped with a RM10,000 compound for shooting a scene at the Penambang 2 jetty in Bukit Pelandok near here.
Port Dickson OCPD Supt Aidi Sham Mohamad said 59-year-old Maria Segayam Silvan had violated the movement control order by doing so.
"A task force from the Bukit Pelandok police station issued him the compound around 11.30am today (May 16) for shooting in an open area which is in violation of the National Security Council standard operating procedures.
"The individual should have taken heed of the SOPs which only allowed filming inside a studio for as long as the MCO is in force," he said in a statement.
Supt Aidi Sham said the police will continue to ensure everyone adheres to the SOPs following the MCO which came into force on May 12.
