Teens at birthday party fined RM5k each


ALOR GAJAH: A 14-year-old is among seven teenagers who were issued with a RM5,000 compound notice each by the police for holding a birthday party in Pulau Sebang.

Alor Gajah OCPD Supt Arshad Abu said six of them were also issued with compound notices for violating the interstate travel ban.

They had travelled from Gemas, Negri Sembilan into Melaka.

Pulau Sebang is located smack in the border of Negri Sembilan and Melaka.

The teenagers – four girls and three boys, aged between 14 and 18 – were detained when they gathered in front of the house of the birthday girl in Taman Baiduri, Pulau Sebang, at about 5pm on Saturday.

Supt Arshad said the 17-year-old girl who had organised her birthday gathering was issued a RM4,000 compound notice.

“All seven teenagers were taken to the Pulau Sebang police station for violating movement control order standard operating procedures.

“We view the case as a serious offence as the teenagers had entered the state from neighbouring areas which presently have high positive Covid-19 cases,” he said yesterday.

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