Court of Appeal told Najib 'turned blind eye' to millions of ringgit deposited in account
PUTRAJAYA: The Court of Appeal was told that large sums of money had entered into the bank accounts of Datuk Seri Najib Razak, but the former prime minister did not make enquiries to ask where the money came from.
You fine them. If you will or can find them. Hmm please do it as it only applies to ordinary rakyat .. What about those who have already jumped the queue. Are they 'protected' or will you go after them and boost the potential takings of fines? Vaccination only in government facility. Queue jumping happen only if collaborated with MOH staff. If MOH staff is willing party, who should be held fully responsible? 🤔
Tak payah bayar denda aaa..just put in the jail straightaway. ...would there be anyone mad enough to jump queue for the dreaded vaccine? It is a mad world, but... Don't forget about those who already jumped the queue... Find them and Fine them I doubt very much Malaysians would go to this extent. Any VIPs would enjoy special privileges over ordinary folks like me. Patronage is the name of the game.
shopee can find one “Individuals” cannot jump queue but a “team” which is/are not even a frontliner will not be fined Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha This level of bullshit is unbelievable Denda ATAU penjara. Menteri2/vvip2/bekas2 menteri yg korup tu senang2 je bayar rm50k. Patutnya, Denda DAN Penjara
So when your friends jump queue, how they escape Fine ? Pls expose la who jump que DGHisham Should double penalty whoever let them jump Q and expose this kaki bodek name too. Just sell the vaccines at pharmacies, private clinics and private hospitals. The filthy rich can pay for the vaccines and all BPN aid recipients can get theirs free of charge. Isn't that what government should be doing?
Why is there a need to jump queue in the first place? If you have registered for that date & given timing then of course u form a queue so as to hv a smooth process. All will get vaccinated accordingly. Definitely not normal citizens. All this antics only done by politicians, Ministers, VVIPs & their acquaintances. So dont stop at 50k fine put them in jail also.

I don't think they will jump queue ... May be some extra super fast lanes for these people. There will be ways for us to manipulate and bend the rules that we made for others. I suggest we cucuk him/her with ketum with a minimum of 10 doses, pas lebai would love it of course... Burit lah!!! Yg langar sop pun apa lancau pun tak buat! Ni pulak jump q! The one jump the q is your ministers and excos! Poor frontliners feel sorry for them!
