PETALING JAYA: A total of 10 compound notices amounting to RM189,500 have been issued to factory operators or premises owners who misused International Trade and Industry Ministry (Miti) approval letters.
Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Mohamad Fakhrudin Abdul Hamid said the compound notices were issued after operations in the district on Friday (June 18).
He said compound notices were also issued for violations of Covid-19 standard operating procedures (SOP) by workers who did not scan the MySejahtera application at the workplace.
"Four premises were ordered to close by Miti as they were not listed under essential services," he told reporters after the joint operation at Taman Industri Sungai Buloh here.
ACP Mohd Fakhrudin said the operation involved a team of 106 from various agencies.
"Among the agencies involved were the National Security Council, Miti, the Health Ministry's Enforcement division and Petaling Jaya City Council.
"The focus of the operation was on verifying the permission to operate for premises and factories.
"We want to detect cases of manipulation that might have occurred and ensure that the SOP is complied with as well," he added.
He also reminded all factory operators and owners of premises to follow instructions issued by the government.
"They should follow the SOP as our main goal is to break the chain of Covid-19 infections," he said.
