TELUK INTAN, June 9 — An owner of a paddy processing factory in Langkap here has been issued with a RM10,000 compound for operating with over 60 per cent workforce during the movement control order (MCO) 3.0.

Hilir Perak district police chief ACP Ahmad Adnan Basri said a garment factory worker was also compounded RM1,500 for failing to scan the MySejahtera application in the four-hour compliance operation at factories, beginning at 11am today.

“The Covid-19 SOP (standard operating procedure) Compliance Op was carried out on the manufacturing sector to ensure SOP compliance set by the Ministry of International Trade and Industry and the National Security Council (MKN) during MCO.

“We also advised and gave suggestions to the sector to improve the management of Covid-19 infection prevention among employees,” he told reporters here today.

In the meantime, Ahmad Adnan said no factories or companies were found operating without permission or were ordered to be closed.
