KOTA KINABALU -Former Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Christina Liew has urged the public to be co-operative and adhere to the standard operating procedures (SOPs) for the second phase of the COVID-19 Movement Control Order (MCO 2.0) for the common good.
“This is not the time for social gatherings. It does not pay to defy the MCO 2.0 stipulated by the Government. Rule breakers cannot escape the long arm of the law.”Do not throw caution to the wind. It is wise to exercise safety precautions, rather than be sorry later,” she said, Monday, after visiting shoplots at Kg Air, Gaya Street and Damai Plaza to give out face shields and calendars.
The Api-Api Assemblywoman was commenting on media reports about the police raid on an entertainment outlet at the KK Waterfront last Saturday (Jan 9), where hundreds of patrons were issued compounds.
Liew commended KK Police for taking appropriate action against the flouters for their absolute disregard of the SOPs.
“Kudos to City Police Chief ACP Habibi Majinji and his enforcement team for the operation. Keep up the good work,” she said.
