The Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) has reminded Malaysians that while lighting up fireworks and firecrackers are allowed in conjunction with the Chap Goh Mei festival this Tuesday (15 February 2022), only two types of fireworks are allowed which are ‘Happy Boom’ fireworks and ‘Pop-pop’ firecrackers.

As reported by national news agency Bernama, Bukit Aman Criminal Investigation Department director Datuk Seri Abd Jalil Hassan said that the restriction is because only the two fireworks and firecrackers do not contain explosive chemicals that could pose a safety threat to citizens.

Furthermore, while sale of the two products are allowed, sellers still need a permit from the District Police Headquarters in accordance with the specifications set. In a statement yesterday, Abd Jalil Hassan stressed,

“The public is reminded that possession, sale, purchase and setting of firecrackers and fireworks are still prohibited in conjunction with any festival, including the Chinese New Year and Chap Goh Mei celebrations,”

The Criminal Investigation Department director further asserted that anyone found possessing, selling, buying or playing firecrackers other than the two variants mentioned can be prosecuted under Sections 7 and 8 of the Explosives Act 1957 (Act 207). If found guilty, individuals can be sentenced to up to 1 month in jail or fined up to RM100 or both, in accordance with the provisions of Section 3 (5) of the Minor offences Act 1955.
