SIBU, March 7: Six more business owners were fined RM1,000 each for violating the  Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) yesterday.

They were three operators of handphone shops, a hawker, a CD shop and a trading company.

Sibu district police chief ACP Stanley Jonathan Ringgit said they were caught by an integrated standard operating procedures (SOP) monitoring team for not having body temperature scanner, MySejahtera code and record book for customers to register their particulars.

The checking was carried out on 14 premises in Jalan Channel, Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman and Raminway here.

The team consisted of police, army, People’s Voluntary Corp (Rela), Marine police, Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry, Road Transport Department and local authority.

“Without these essential things in their premises they have committed an offence under Regulation 18 of the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases (Measures Within the Infected Local Areas) Regulations 2021,” he said.

On Friday, two shop owners in a shopping complex at Jalan Salim were caught without the same items. — DayakDaily
