KUALA TERENGGANU (Bernama): Six individuals, including a woman, were issued compound notices of RM5,000 each for crossing state borders for holiday to Pulau Redang in Kuala Nerus.
Terengganu police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Rohaimi Md Isa said the compound notices were issued to the six,aged between 32 and 47, through an integrated operation on compliance with Phase Three of the National Recovery Plan for the Tourism Sector conducted on Saturday (Sept 25) and the day before.
He said two of them had crossed state borders from Kuala Lumpur, two others from Selangor, while the other two were from Penang and Melaka respectively.
"Such operation will be continued from time to time to ensure that no violation of the SOP (standard operating procedures) occurs to prevent an increase in cases of infection and transmission of Covid-19 in Terengganu," he said in a statement on Sunday (Sept 26).
DCP Rohaimi said stern action would also be taken against resort operators who ignored the SOPs, as well as allowed tourists from outside Terengganu to stay at their premises for purpose of travel and also failing to ensure the guests are fully vaccinated against Covid-19.- Bernama
