The Movement Control Order (MCO) is in it’s second wave and there’s more than ever rebels on the street not abiding the MCO. A total of 26 individuals including 12 foreigners were fined RM1,000 each by the magistrate’s court here today for failing to adhere to the Movement Control Order (MCO).
They have to serve three months’ jail if they do not pay the fines.
One of them was also fined RM5,000 in default of six months’ jail for obstructing civil servants from carrying out their duties, and two other men were fined RM500 each, in default two months’ jail, for failing to produce their identity cards (IC) when they were arrested.
Oh My Media
So far, the number of people arrested stands at 4,189, compared to the cumulative total of 3,116 COVID-19 patients in the country.
According to Defence Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob, “If the trend is an indication of the public’s response to the government’s call to stay at home, then it is a good sign. This is something we have been looking forward to because it means the public now appears to be aware of the importance of following instructions to stay at home.”
Remember folks, #JustStayAtHome
