A man’s name appeared twice in a row on the list of violators during Operasi Pulih – a movement control measure to ensure the public remains at home from 8pm to 4am – which went viral recently.
Minister of Health Dato Seri Setia Dr Haji Mohd Isham bin Haji Jaafar during the daily press conference yesterday said this is being discussed with the Attorney General’s Chambers to produce the suspect in court.

The RBPF urged the public to work together to break the chain of COVID-19 infection by complying with the regulations under Chapter 204 of the Infectious Diseases Act, failing of which will result in action being taken on the violator.
