MCC takes sterner actions against SOP violators

Date:

MIRI: Miri City Council (MCC) is now taking sterner action against those who fail to comply with the standard operating procedures (SOPs) imposed under the movement control order (MCO).

Mayor Adam Yii Siew Sang said the council had received feedback that certain entertainment outlets such as Bistros and Pubs are still operating and, to certain extent, some are even operating beyond 8pm.

“Such entertainment activities are clearly listed under unpermitted activities including karaoke sessions which should cease operation during the present MCO from May 28 until June 14.

“Hence, a joint enforcement team comprising council enforcement personnel, police officers and personnel from other agencies would carry out its operation for sterner action,” he said in a statement.

Yii also noted that those licensed operators who are found trading during this period will be issued with compound notice and that their operating licences might be withdrawn as well.

“For those unlicensed ones, the authorities would institute legal action apart from seizure of their properties and equipment,” he added.

The mayor also urged the general public, in particular the business operators in Miri, to adhere to the SOPs as more and more clusters of Covid-19 were found and this has indicated that a greater number of people are infected with Covid-19.

“For our own safety and the safety among the community, this nationwide total lockdown during the current MCO is a difficult one, but it has to be followed seriously before this pandemic in Miri is getting from bad to and from worse to worst,” he advised.
