KUALA LUMPUR – A cocktail bar owner is set to become RM20,000 poorer for allegedly violating the SOPs of Phase 4 of the National Recovery Plan (NRP) by throwing a party at his premises.
Dang Wangi Police Chief, Assistant Commissioner Noor Delhan Yahaya said police were alerted of the incident through a 14-second video uploaded by Twitter user @MalaysianCitiz3 yesterday (Nov 27).
The video showed a large group of partygoers having a good time without face masks or social distancing.
The user also called upon Health Minister Khairy Jamalauddin and Immigration Department director-general Datuk Khairul Dzaimee Daud to take stern action.
The incident is believed to have taken place at Concubine KL, Jalan Panggong, City Centre.
