KUALA LUMPUR: Police issued more than RM150,000 worth of compound notices for Covid-19 standard operating procedure violations after raiding two entertainment outlets here.
Dang Wangi OCPD Asst Comm Noor Dellhan Yahaya said a team from Dang Wangi CID raided the two premises at around 12.30am on Sunday (March 20).
“We raided the outlets at Jalan Raja Chulan and Jalan Bukit Bintang.
“In the first raid, we detained seven men, two of them foreigners, and five women, aged between 18 and 45 years old,” he said in a statement.
He said police issued RM1,000 compound notices to 10 people including the manager of the outlet.
“We also arrested the two foreign men to assist in investigations into SOP violations as well as Immigration Act violations.
“In the second raid, we detained 70 men and 70 women aged between 18 and 65 years old,” he said, adding that they were all issued RM1,000 compound notices.
ACP Noor Dellhan said police have opened an investigation paper under Section 4(1) of the Entertainment Act (Kuala Lumpur Federal Territory) for organising nightclub activities without a valid licence.
“We advise the public to comply with the SOP set by the National Security Council.
“We will continue to conduct operations and checks on entertainment outlet activities which are currently not allowed under Phase Four of the National Recovery Plan,” he said, adding that police would take stern action against anyone who intentionally violates SOP.
