Two directors of LC Marketing Network Media Sdn Bhd have been ordered to pay an RM10,000 fine each after they pleaded guilty to owning 79 units of non-certified Android TV boxes with the intention to sell them at Digital Mall in Petaling Jaya, Selangor.

Chen Kaiyi, 34, and Yeak Wang Ying, 33, were charged at the Petaling Jaya Sessions Court earlier this week. Their company, LC Marketing Network Media, has also been slapped with an RM15,000 fine. 

The charges were filed under Regulation 16 of the Communications and Multimedia (Technical Standards) Regulations 2000, and Section 244 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998.

Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) enforcement and investigation head Datuk Mohd Shafie Harun reminded the public to look out for the Sirim label before purchasing a communication device.

“MCMC urges the people to only purchase and use communications equipment that has been certified by Sirim. If you are unsure, download the Check Your Label mobile app or visit ecomm.sirim.my to ensure that the communications equipment purchased is legitimate and certified,” said Mohd Shafie.
