Entrepreneur and celebrity Noor Neelofa Mohd Noor and her husband, Muhammad Haris Mohd Ismail, pleaded not guilty in the Seremban Magistrate’s Court today to violating SOPs under the conditional movement control order (CMCO) at a carpet shop early this month.
The charges against them were read out before magistrate Mahyun Yusoff.
Haris, 26, was charged with two counts of failing to comply with CMCO SOPs, namely failing to wear a face mask and to scan the MySejahtera application or write his name in the registration book to check in at Kedai Naeem Carpet Sdn Bhd, Kawasan Perindustrian Nilai 3, Nilai, at 4pm on May 2.
Neelofa, 32, was charged with failing to scan the MySejahtera application or write her name in the registration book to check in at the same place and time.
In allowing Haris bail of RM10,000 for both charges and RM5,000 with one surety against Neelofa, the court set June 4 for mention.
The couple, charged with violating 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, face a fine not exceeding RM50,000, imprisonment of up to six months, or both, if found guilty.
The prosecution was conducted by deputy public prosecutor Nor Azizah Aling, while lawyer Haresh Mahadevan represented the couple.
The couple posted the bail.
