Police: Do not violate home quarantine order
SIBU: The police here have advised those undergoing home quarantine not to violate the order.
District police chief ACP Stanley Jonathan Ringgit said this with regards to a case involving a construction site supervisor, 27, who violated his home quarantine order recently.
The man was seven days into his home quarantine after being quarantined at a hotel here upon his arrival in Sibu from Kuala Lumpur on May 17.
He went out to have ‘kampua’ noodles at a coffeeshop in Sibu Jaya, and then posted photos of his meal on Facebook that later went viral.
“If you are told to undergo home quarantine, do not go out. There is also no need to boast about the wrong act.
“It is the only home quarantine violation case in Sibu,” he told reporters after receiving contributions from Sri Minyak Sdn Bhd at Sibu police headquarters here yesterday.
The man had turned himself in at Sibu Jaya police station on Monday, Stanley said.
Sibu Crime Prevention and Community Safety Division head DSP Ariffin Bahar, Sri Minyak executive chairman Dato William Tiu and managing director Johnson Tiu were among those present at the handing-over ceremony.
Stanley thanked William for the contributions comprising energy drinks, rice, drinking water, face masks and hand sanitisers.
Ariffin meanwhile advised those who will be celebrating Gawai Dayak to be mindful of the standard operating procedure (SOP) of the CMCO during the celebration.
They must not invite their friends and relatives to their house for visiting, he said.
“We will enforce the same SOP for Hari Raya for Gawai celebration. Also, do not drink and drive,” he said.
