Former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad today offered an apology, saying he is also ready to face the music for defying the SOPs during a programme in Langkawi last week.
The Langkawi MP said he was informed that he had violated the SOPs by not recording his body temperature when entering Surau Tsunami Batu Arang in Kuala Teriang, Kuah, for a Ramadan aid distribution programme on May 8.
“This is an offence. It shouldn’t have been done. I am sorry for not complying with the SOP. I will face the music according to the relevant law,” he said in a Facebook post.
He said the SOPs should be followed by everyone as they can help curb the spread of Covid-19.
“We shouldn’t take this lightly. Again, I apologise for defying the rules,” he said.
