Any person who breaks any of the new regulations will be committing an offence that is punishable by a maximum fine of RM1,000 or a maximum six-month jail term or both.
For example, you business is still operating even though you are not allowed to during Movement Control Order..
If the offence was committed by a body corporate, any officer of the body corporate — including if they were a director, manager, secretary or was responsible for its affairs at the time the offence was committed — may be charged in the same proceedings with the body corporate.
If the body corporate is found guilty of such offences, its officer will also be considered guilty unless he is able to prove that it was committed without his knowledge or consent and that he took all reasonable precautions and due diligence to prevent the commission of the offence, the regulations said.
Cooperation with authorities
For Malaysian citizens or permanent residents of Malaysia returning from overseas, they must first undergo health examination upon arrival in Malaysia before heading for immigration clearance at any point of entry and will also be required to comply with any orders by an authorised officer, the regulations today said.
Under the new regulations, everyone is required to comply with requests from authorised officers for any information on prevention and control of infectious diseases.
Let’s play our part as a thoughtful citizen to practise social distancing, stay positive and believe no obstacle is too difficult to overcome as long as our hearts are as one.
