The owner of an eatery at a popular shopping mall in the capital was issued a RM10,000 compound during a movement control order (MCO) SOP compliance inspection yesterday.

Kuala Lumpur Crime Prevention and Community Safety Department chief Azman Ayob said during the 12.45pm operation, five customers who were eating at the premises were also issued RM2,000 compounds each.

“Police checks revealed the customers were eating at the premises and did not comply with the set SOPs, which state no dine-in,” he said in a statement.

He added that police would intensify checks with stern action to be taken against those who fail to comply with the MCO SOPs to ensure that the Covid-19 infection chain is broken.

The case is being investigated under Regulation 16 PU (A) 243/2021 PKP.
