The Federal Territories Minister, Tan Sri Annuar Musa has been issued a fine of RM2,000 for violating the Covid-19 standard operating procedure (SOP) during the Phase 1 of the National Recovery Plan.
According to Sinar Harian, Dang Wangi District Police Chief, Assistant Commissioner Mohamad Zainal Abdullah confirms his violation and the compound was issued in accordance with Regulation 17 of the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Regulations 2021.
In addition, the minister’s office had issued a statement confirming that Annuar Musa has received the compound notice from the police.
This comes after Annuar Musa tweeted about his visit to the former prime minister Tun Abdullah bin Ahmad Badawi at his residence in Bait Badawi, Kuala Lumpur on last Saturday (10 July).
In his tweet, he said that both he and his wife had spend 2 hours at Badawi’s residence and had lunch cooked by Badawi’s wife, Tun Jeanne Abdullah.
After netizens found out about this, they went outraged over his tweet and accused him of violating the SOPs of Phase 1. Nonetheless, Annuar Musa had since then deleted the tweet but it was too late as netizens had taken photos of it.
Netizens commented that how can a minister forgets about the SOP and said that if it were the members of the public who pay a visit to their parents, they would be called to turn back immediately.
This is just one incident that’s fresh in my mind cos it happened outside my house and I could hear the cops questioning him. There are families who have not seen each other for weeks, months, some more than a year. These double standards have got to stop.— Pamella Lim (@pamellalah) July 10, 2021
If rakyat go and visit, police come immediately, and fine. We have one big confessions here, what are they waiting for? Go and saman la. Or WILL OPEN KERTAS SIASATAN lagi.🙄— Leyna (@Leyna_BR) July 10, 2021
Is he flexing about breaking SOP? The caps used, people he visited, the location and the hours spent. Purposedly…highlighted. Almost like saying “You can’t touch me coppers!”— Hakim Ariff 🇲🇾 (@hakimostudio) July 11, 2021
