Written by TheMole

KUALA LUMPUR — March 31, 2020: Eleven men arrested for jogging in Mont Kiara in defiance of the movement control order (MCO) have been fined RM1,000 each in default of four weeks’ jail.

They were British national Jamie Bubb Sacklyn, 28; Koreans Woo Yum Sik, 54, Lee Jong Young, 50, Kwang Suk Lee, 51; Japanese Koichi Itano, 60, Tanakatohishiko, 61, Mitsuhiru Takayanagi, 51, Taichi Okubo, 36; Indian Vikram Beliappa, 48; and Malaysians S. K. Ramani, 56, and Au Yong Vooi Loon, 31.

They were charged with violating the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Regulations on March 29.

In Petaling Jaya, a woman was arrested after she shouted and called policemen at a roadblock “idiots”.

She was earlier caught in a traffic jam due to the roadblock on Persiaran Surian.

OCPD Nik Ezanee Mohd. Faisal said the woman was arrested after she shouted at the policemen as she was passing through the roadblock.

There are 11 roadblocks in PJ during this MCO.

Also in KL, a lorry driver was sentenced to one month’s jail for defying the MCO.

P.R. Yugendran, 26, admitted to committing the offence near Gombak on March 28. Yugendran, who was riding a motorcycle, tried to flee when stopped by policemen who later managed to arrest him.

When asked why he was out and about, Yugendran said he was hanging out with his friend and was on his way home.

Yugendran, however, pleaded not guilty to a second charge of voluntarily obstructing a public servant in discharging his duty.
