Man issued compound notice for not wearing face mask at homeless centre

KUALA LUMPUR: A video of a man who was not wearing a face mask while belittling an elderly man at a homeless transit centre for the homeless has gone viral.

Dang Wangi OCPD Asst Comm Mohamad Zainal Abdullah said the 49-second-long video showed the incident taking place at the transit centre on Jalan Pahang.

"Based on our investigations the incident occurred at around 11.30am on Monday (July 26) where an individual was giving a motivational talk titled Ubah Hidup to 20 homeless people.

"We called the 34-year-old individual to Dang Wangi police headquarters at 5.20pm on Wednesday (July 28) to take his statement on the incident and subsequently issued him with a RM1,500 compound notice for not wearing a face mask at the transit centre," he said in a statement on Wednesday.

He said the compound notice was issued under Rule 17(1) of the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Regulations 2021.

ACP Mohamad Zainal advised the public to comply with the standard operating procedure set by the National Security Council in order to combat the Covid-19 pandemic.

"Failure to comply will result in action taken under all available laws and regulations in place," he said.
