Celebrity Noor Neelofa Mohd Noor and her husband, Muhammad Haris Mohd Ismail, will be charged at the Magistrate’s Court in Seremban today with defying SOPs under the conditional movement control order (CMCO).
Nilai police chief Supt Mohd Fazley Ab Rahman said the couple would be charged under Regulation 19 of the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases (Measures Within Infected Local Area) (Conditional Movement Control) No.4) (Amendment) (No.12) Regulations 2021).
He said Haris would face two charges, namely for failing to scan the MySejahtera QR code or to register manually to check in at a business premises in Nilai earlier this month and for not wearing a face mask at a public place as required under CMCO SOPs.
“Meanwhile, Neelofa will be charged with failing to comply with the CMCO SOPs by not scanning the MySejahtera QR code or register manually to check in to the same premises,” he said in a statement last night.
On May 2, Neelofa uploaded pictures and videos of her and her husband at a carpet shop in Nilai, which immediately went viral. Two days later, both of them were reported to have spent four hours at the Nilai police headquarters to give their statements on the case.
Meanwhile, Kuala Lumpur police chief Azmi Abu Kassim said investigation papers on another SOP-defying case involving Neelofa and her family’s Raya gathering would be submitted to the Attorney-General’s Chambers soon.
“Raya visits are not allowed (throughout MCO) as set by the government.
“Anyone with information on SOP violations is requested to channel the information to the Kuala Lumpur police at 03-2115 9999 or any police station,” he said in a statement.
On Tuesday, Neelofa and her family members were reported to have given their statements at the Brickfields police headquarters for allegedly having celebrated the first day of Aidilfitri together in a house in Pinggir Zaaba, Taman Tun Dr Ismail. Videos of the family gathering went viral on social media.
