KUALA LUMPUR, Apr 28 – UMNO Deputy President Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan hopes that the enforcement of the Movement Control Order (CMO), the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) and its Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) should not be implemented to burden the people. .
Its implementation, he said must be carried out strictly, firm and with jurisdiction.
“The law in the right hand, kindness in the left hand. Without compassion, then there is no consideration for justice. And don’t be enforced selectively, with VVIPs and celebrities getting different treatment,” he said in a Facebook posting.
He said this as an expression of his regret following the incident of a trader who was given a compound of RM50,000 just for making burgers beyond the set time limit. The compound is unthinkable and beyond comprehension.
“Last week, students at a college in Perak were compounded just for not using face masks properly to buy food. They are just students, living in the dormitory area and they certainly do not have the ability to pay large fines,” he said.
He stressed that people are increasingly feeling the heat because they have been waiting for more than a year for the end of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Let’s not add to their frustration and predicaments. Be fair and considerate when enforcing it… its the best lesson and example, God willing,” he said.
