Authorities are really making headway these days, with reports of them issuing fines to the public for breaching Covid-19 SOPs are seemingly ubiquitous and almost breaking the internet.

In the latest crackdown carried out by the authorities, a motorsport organiser at the Sepang International Circuit was fined RM20,000 for failing to ensure physical distancing among its attendees.

According to a report by motorsport page Funtasticko, the organiser was compounded for failing to control the crowd and not complying with social distancing requirements.

According to the KLIA Police Chief Imran Abd Rahman, the organiser had obtained a permit to carry out the event but failed to ensure compliance with Covid-19 SOPs. He iterated,

“We fined the organiser for failing to control the crowd and not complying with physical distancing requirements under the SOPs.”

According to netizens attending the event, the organiser was also partly to be blamed for the incident.

One netizen writes, “The organiser did not adhere to the schedule. They kept admitting people into the event because they were making loads of money selling the seats.”

“They kept boasting the fact that tickets were sold out and failed to adhere to SOPs.”

“They failed to follow their own set schedule.”

Commenting on the matter, the organiser writes, “Our failure to control social (physical) distancing resulted in the event having to be halted several times.”

“We apologise to all parties involved and are not blaming anyone, whether it is the enforcement agency, circuit provider (that is the SIC), programme partners, drag teams, visitors or followers of MUSC Drag Racing.”

Let’s hope that organisers of events that pull huge crowds will take this incident as a warning that failure to adhere to SOPs will be met with fines from the authorities.
