310 people were compounded RM1,000 each after they were caught partying at a club in Jalan PJU 7/3 Mutiara Damansara, Petaling Jaya on the morning of 26th July.

This included 110 women and 200 men of which 10 of the total number were foreign workers, reported Berita Harian. A 29-year-old local man who is believed to be the employer of the foreign workers was also picked-up during the raid.

District police chief Assistant Commissioner Nik Ezanee Mohd Faisal said these individuals had flouted the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO). Clubs, bars and pubs are still not allowed to reopen during the RMCO even though other entertainment outlets like karaoke halls and arcades have reopened on 15th July.

“Ten officers and 19 personnel from the district headquarters raided three premises in Mutiara Damansara on suspicion that RMCO standard operating procedure were flouted last night,” he said.

“At the time, there were 200 men and 110 women, aged between 20 to 30 who breached the RMCO SOP at the club. Each of them was fined RM1,000, as stated in the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Act 1988.”

“The foreigners aged 25 to 30 without work permits are being investigated under Section 39b of the Immigration Act 1959.”

He also mentioned that the compliance level of individuals and business premises seem to be declining and added that PJ police has decided to “increase its surveillance and take sterner against public who don’t follow SOPs.”

“The compounds issued last night were also the highest number of compounds issued in one day,” he said.

During the raid, the police seized electronic devices such as microphone, amplifier, turntable and cash about RM9,000, according to NST.

Meanwhile, the government is in the process of preparing the SOPs for entertainment centres, nightclubs and bars.

Minister of Housing and Local Government Zuraida Kamaruddin said that after there is a clear SOP, each operator of the premises must make an application with the local authority to begin operating, reported Harian Metro.

“It may be difficult for us to control the entertainment centre so we need to be careful in terms of SOP and its enforcement,” she said.

“If the SOP is completed later, each operator must make an application to the local authority in their respective areas to review and ensure that they follow the procedure strictly.”

She said this at a press conference after officiating the Pei You Library and Fire Prevention Awareness Programme at the Kampung Baru Salak South community hall on 26th July.

Additionally, the Compliance Operations Task Force has arrested 617 individuals for violating the RMCO as of 26th July. Defence Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said 20 of them were remanded while 597 individuals were compounded, in another report by Harian Metro.

“One of the crimes committed that violate the RMCO includes a nightclub activity (331) and another activity with an extreme number of people (286) making it difficult to maintain social distancing,” he said.

“A special team led by the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) conducted 61,715 inspections yesterday to monitor and enforce compliance with the RMCO standard operating procedures (SOP).”

He added that a total of 2,736 compliance teams involving 12,520 members monitored 4,238 supermarkets; 5,903 restaurants, 1,999 hawkers; 1,225 factories; 3,634 banks and 682 government offices, according to Harian Metro.

He also said that monitoring was carried out at 1,205 land transport terminals; 232 water transport terminals as well as 88 air transport terminals.

Regarding the national border control, he said that 67 roadblocks were set up and 34,224 vehicles were inspected to curb the entry of illegal immigrants using rat lanes. He said that PDRM had arrested a foreigner during the inspection.

“The government will continue to take stern action against any party who tries to enter the country’s borders illegally,” he said.

“Enforcement agencies are actively tightening border controls, especially using rat lanes.”

There’s a saying which goes “give them an inch and they’ll take a mile” which implies that when you give a person small concessions, they’ll respond by taking advantage of you.

Unfortunately, this is the case for some Malaysians who take advantage of the relaxations offered in the Conditional Movement Control Order. Somehow, it’s difficult for these people to understand that we also play a huge part in containing this pandemic.

Latest to join this list of people are 98 Malaysians who were compounded RM1,000 each and six individuals were detained during a raid at an entertainment outlet in Petaling Jaya. The Star reported that Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Nik Ezanee Mohd Faisal said they raided the Damansara Utama outlet at 12.20am on Monday after receiving reports that they were operating illegally during the CMCO

The compound was given to the 98 locals in that area and three foreign women, aged between 21 and 40, were detained for violating their visas by working as hostesses. The man who hired them was also detained as he hired foreign workers without permits and was also selling alcohol without a liquor license.

“We seized 66 bottles of liquor along with four receipts. We also found that two local women tested positive for drugs and detained them.”

There’s a reason why the government hasn’t allowed the openings of bars and clubs as they’re NOT ESSENTIAL! Just when our country seems to be going on the right track, don’t let selfish and irresponsible people bring us down.

Wise up Malaysians, stay home and stay safe.
