Police fined a local Tamil movie director RM10,000 for breaching the COVID-19 standard operating procedures (SOPs) after he was caught filming outdoors in Negeri Sembilan yesterday, 16 May
According to Bernama, he was served with the RM10,000 compound while he and his team were filming outdoors at Jeti Penambang 2, Bukit Pelanduk near Seremban.
Port Dickson district police chief Supt Aidi Sham Mohamed said that the director — a 59-year-old man — was fined after police received information about a movie being filmed outdoors late yesterday morning.
According to Aidi, filming is only permitted in studios during the Movement Control Order (MCO) period
"The individual who was compounded should have been more sensitive to the SOP set by the National Security Council (MKN), whereby filming is only allowed in studios during the MCO period," Aidi lamented in a statement last night.
He added that PDRM is paying serious attention to those who have breached the SOPs set by MKN for the Hari Raya period.
This is in order to contain and manage the growing number of daily COVID-19 cases nationwide.
