A TOTAL 330 individuals have been issued compound notices of RM10,000 each for flouting the movement-control order (MCO) standard operating procedure (SOP) nationwide, said Inspector-General of Police Abdul Hamid Bador.

“Yes, 330 individuals have been issued with the compound notices for flouting the MCO SOP,” he said when contacted by Bernama.

He said the decision to raise the fine was not to punish offenders excessively or enable the government to collect money from the public.

He said it was aimed at individuals who repeated the same offences under the MCO SOP such as failure to wear a mask, observe physical distancing and providing temperature scanning equipment at premises.– Bernama
