Police arrested three people in Putrajaya and Brickfields in Kuala Lumpur yesterday for alleged involvement in the sale of Covid-19 vaccines.

Kuala Lumpur police chief Azmi Abu Kassim said two women and a man between 23 and 50 years of age were detained as a result of a police investigation following a report lodged by a Covid-19 Immunisation Task Force (CITF) research officer.

He said the trio worked as marketing officers at a private firm and were found to have offered and sold Covid-19 vaccines through random calls to the public.

“They charged RM420 for two doses but payment was to be done only after the second dose.

“Police raided the suspects’ homes and seized six handphones and documents related to the sale. All of them have been remanded for three days from today to facilitate investigations,” he said in a statement.

Azmi said the Federal CITF secretariat chief had also confirmed that the Covid-19 Vaccine Supply Access Guarantee Special Committee had not given any approval for the sale of Covid-19 vaccines.
