17 individuals were fined RM1,000 each for jogging at the Sungai Udang Recreational Forest in violation of standard operating procedures (SOP) during the Movement Control Order (MCO) at 6.30pm on 24 January.

According to Melaka Police Chief Datuk Abdul Majid Mohd Ali, the individuals aged between 13 and 42 were fined under the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Act 1998 (Act 342) as no activities are allowed in recreational parks during MCO.

“Police found there were 36 individuals in the area, but only 17 were compounded while the others managed to escape inspection as there was also a third party which tried to intervene during the incident,” he said, according to Bernama.

“This is something that should not have happened as everyone is working hard to break the chain of Covid-19 infection. Police will not compromise with individuals who try to violate the order, including intervention by any parties.”

Previously, Defence Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob announced that sports and recreational activities are prohibited during MCO, but individuals can carry out their leisure activities (jogging, cycling) in their neighbourhood and must be limited to two people in a group.
