Six individuals including three women were slapped with compound notices totalling RM50,000 for violating the movement control SOPs at an entertainment centre in Jalan Changkat Thambi Dollah in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.
Dang Wangi district police chief ACP Mohamad Zainal Abdullah said the owner of the premises was compounded RM25,000 for committing an offence under the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Regulations (No 2) 2021, while five patrons were fined RM5,000 each.
He said a Vietnamese woman and a Bangladeshi man, who were also at the premises during the 5pm raid, were detained and an investigation paper will be opened under the Immigration Act 1959/63.
“During the raid, people aged between 36 and 54 were having a good time, not maintaining physical distancing and not wearing face masks,” he said.
He said surveillance found that the premises had been operating for several days from 3pm for regular customers who entered through the back door.
Prior to that, the owner told the investigation officer that two workers had come to the premises with their friends to collect their salaries and to finish up the remaining food and alcoholic beverage stock there.
