KUCHING, April 18: Two shoppers who failed to prove they had registered their details either manually or through the MySejahtera application before entering Miri Central Market have been compounded RM1,500 each.

Miri City Council (MCC) said the two shoppers were found to be flouting Covid-19 standard operating procedures (SOPs) during an operation by the council’s enforcement team.

“The offenders were unable to prove that they had registered their personal particulars in the record book or by scanning in through MySejahtera before entering the market,” it said in a statement today.

During the same operation, the council said the Combined Enforcement Team also inspected a few markets but found everyone to be complying with SOPs, and thus no compounds were issued.

MCC also said the markets inspected include Pasar Besar Krokop, Tamu Pujut Corner and the new Miri Fish Market while the enforcement team comprised enforcement personnel from MCC and the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM).

The MCC team was led by its Assistant Secretary Mohd Zaidi and the PDRM personnel were led by Inspector Mohd Nashriq Noring.

“MCC would like to advise the general public to seriously observe the SOPs imposed at council markets, other business premises, as well as public places as such operations, will still be carried out by enforcement personnel appointed under the Sarawak Disaster Management Committee (SDMC),” said MCC. — DayakDaily
