Two factories in Batu Pahat fined RM28k for breaching SOP

BATU PAHAT: Two factories were issued compound notices of RM28,000 for violating the standard operating procedure (SOP) in an industrial area here.

Batu Pahat OCPD Asst Comm Ismail Dollah said the notices were given during a joint operation conducted by the police and other government agencies from 10am to 3pm on Thursday (June 17).

“A total of 10 compound notices amounting to RM28,000 were issued to the two factories for flouting SOP set by the National Security Council and local council," he said in a statement.

One of them, a clothing factory, was ordered to shut for a week after it was found to have allowed more than 60% of the workers to be on-site, he added.

The operation was led by DSP Azlihan Ishak together with 21 officers and personnel from the police, Health Ministry, Labour Department, Social Security Organisation (Socso) and Batu Pahat Municipal Council.

ACP Ismail said the police have so far issued 52 compound notices to 46 factories here since the lockdown started on June 1.

“We have also ordered two factories to close in the same period,” he added.
