KEPALA BATAS: Five individuals became the first batch of people to be slapped with RM1,000 compound for violating the Movement Control Order ( MCO ).
He said the five were part of 19 people who were detained on Wednesday.“Since no further investigation is warranted against them for clearly violating the MCO, we issued them with the RM1,000 compound.“As for the remaining 14, we believe there is a need for us to investigate further to establish other criminal elements besides them violating the MCO. If the cases are strong, we will prosecute them in court,” he said after a visit to Pasar Bisik Kuala Muda in Penaga here today.
Since the start of the MCO, Penang police have detained some 587 people for violating the MCO.It was reported yesterday that police would begin to issue compound notices to MCO violators.Federal police Internal Security and Public Order Department director Datuk Seri Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani had said that the issuing of the compound notices was in line with the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Act 1988.
He had also said that violators would be given two weeks to settle the RM1,000 compound. Failure to do so would land them in court.Meanwhile, Sahabudin spent about 30 minutes, checking out the activities at Pasar Bisik.He said he was pleased that the fishermen and wholesalers allowed there were observing the rules set such as the one metre social distancing.
“We hope that this situation will maintain throughout the MCO and beyond. Once the situation returns to normal, we have no issues with individual buyers coming here to purchase fresh seafood products,” he said.Sahabudin said despite the MCO he was told by the village chief there that the fishermen’s livelihood had not been affected.
Rather, he said, they were enjoying brisk businesses.“Some have reported about 70 per cent increase in income since the MCO.“This is because many of the wholesalers who have not come to the Pasar Bisik in the past, are doing so now. So this is something good.”
On a related matter, Sahabudin said the level of compliance of the MCO in the state has improved vastly.“At the start of the MCO, about 50 per cent of motorists were asked to turn back for not having a valid reason to go out.“Now, less than a handful of motorists were asked to turn back. Our level of compliance stands at almost 98 per cent,” he added.Read more: New Straits Times »
