RM32,000 compounds issued in Labuan

KOTA KINABALU: Birthday celebrants as well as beach-goers were among 16 people issued with compounds amounting RM32,000 for violating the conditional movement control order in Labuan.

Labuan district OCPD Supt Ahmad Jawila said from the 16 people fined, two were caught hanging out at the beach while seven were fined for not physically distancing during a birthday party.

“Each of them were fined RM2,000 for the offences mentioned, ” he said in a statement yesterday.

He said there was also a case of an individual crossing districts without a permit and that person was issued a RM5,000 compound.

“The other violations were those who failed to scan the QR Code in their MySejahtera app when entering a premises, ” Supt Ahmad said.

The offenders in these cases were fined RM1,500 each.

He said when the conditional MCO was implemented on May 12, police were lenient and gave advice first instead of immediately issuing offenders with compounds.

Supt Ahmad said they chose to take a stricter approach because of the lax attitude among many who failed to comply with standard operating procedure.

“We have teams going around patrolling and checking on SOP adherence continuously on a daily basis, ” he said.
