FIFTY percent discount will be offered to individuals who are fined for violating the Movement Control Order (MCO) SOPs provided that the payment is made within seven days, says law minister Datuk Takiyuddin Hassan.

25% discount will be given for settlement within two weeks. 

Takiyuddin announced in a press conference today that RM1,500 will be imposed against first-time offenders and individuals who do not wear masks, those who fail to register or use the MySejahtera app to check in as well as those who do not adhere to physical distancing.

No discount will be given after the two weeks period.

Prior to this, the government announced that RM10,000 fine will be issued under the Emergency (Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases) (Amendment) Ordinance 2021 (Amendment Ordinance).

Meanwhile, Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Adham Baba said since the implementation of RM10,000 fine on March 11, no one came forward to make the payment.
