KUALA LUMPUR (March 12): A man has been slapped with a RM10,000 compound for not registering his details while in a restaurant in Bukit Jalil yesterday as part of Covid-19 standard operating procedures (SOPs), The Star reported.
Cheras OCPD Asst Comm Mohamed Mokhsein Mohamed Zon said the compliance operation task force was inspecting a restaurant in Bukit Jalil at 6.55pm yesterday and they “issued a compound on an individual for not scanning the MySejahtera app or registered his details manually on the registration book prepared”.
“A compound of RM10,000 was issued on those who violated the SOP in accordance to the Emergency Ordinance, ” he told the daily today.
Meanwhile, netizens have claimed that the man who was given the new hefty compound already registered his details “using other means”.
But Mohamed Mokhsein “dismissed allegations” that the man had already registered his details via “other means”.
“Allegation that the individual had supposedly registered using other means is not true,” he said.
It was reported yesterday that the compound for violating the SOP of the Movement Control Order has been increased from RM1,000 to RM10,000 starting yesterday, announced Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador.
Abdul Hamid said the SOP offenders would be issued a RM10,000 compound notice, but it was up to the discretion of the authorised officers, namely the District Health Officers (PKD), to determine the actual value of the compound fine.
“Any police officer or personnel only issues a compound notice to SOP offenders for not wearing a face mask or not practising physical distancing.
"They are given two weeks to settle the compound, however, offenders can appeal to PKD and [it is] up to PKD's discretion to determine the amount of payment," he said.
