The police is conducting a detailed investigation into the viral video that showed a large crowd of people gathering at the Sunway Lagoon Theme Park in Subang Jaya over the past weekend.
According to Harian Metro, Subang Jaya Deputy Chief of Police, Superintendent Mohd Fairus Jaafar said action was taken after they received information from the video which went viral after it was uploaded to the FB page “Rizal Hakimm Punyer”.
“There were a total of 3,513 visitors spotted at the water theme park last Saturday (6th November), which is the date of the incident.”
“The Preliminary investigation found that Sunway Lagoon Theme Park can accommodate up to 40,000 visitors at a time, while the capacity allowed according to the SOP of the fourth phase of the National Rehabilitation Plan (NRP) is 20,000 people.” Mohd Fairus said.
He added that his team has conducted a detailed investigation on the matter and they will take appropriate action if there is a violation of the SOP.
However, he said that there is no police report being lodged regarding the incident.
“We urge those who have more information on the case over the incident to contact the Subang Jaya District Control Center at 03-56210343 for further action.” he said.
At the time of writing, the management of Sunway Lagoon has yet to respond to the situation on their social media accounts.
Nonetheless, it is still worrisome to see such large crowds in close proximity, and that Malaysia is just starting to recover from the Covid-19 pandemic.
