ALOR GAJAH: A 14-year-old is among seven teenagers who were issued with compound notices for RM5,000 each for holding a birthday party.

Alor Gajah OCPD Supt Arshad Abu said four girls and three boys were issued the compound notices for attending a 17-year-old's birthday party at 5pm on Saturday (July 10) at Taman Baiduri, Pulau Sebang, here.

Pulau Sebang is on the border of Negri Sembilan and Melaka, hence some of the teenagers were also found to have violated the interstate travel ban.

Supt Arshad said six of the teenagers were issued compound notices for crossing state borders.

"They had no documents or valid reason for crossing borders.

"We view the case as a serious offence as the teenagers had entered the state from neighbouring areas which have a high number of Covid-19 cases," he said on Sunday (July 11).

Supt Arshad said the compound notices were issued under Regulation 4 (1) of the Disease Prevention Measure and Control Act 2021.

He added that all seven, including the house owner, were brought to Pulau Sebang police station to have their statements recorded.
