PETALING JAYA: Deputy Health Minister Dr Noor Azmi Ghazali and Perak executive councillor Razman Zakaria were fined RM1,000 each at the Gerik Magistrate’s Court today for breaching the movement control order (MCO).

Noor Azmi and Razman came under fire after photographs emerged showing them attending a lunch event at a religious school in Perak.

They were criticised for violating the MCO, enforced to curb the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

Also fined the same amount were Perak executive councillor for education, human capital development, NGOs and civil society, Razman Zakaria, and 13 others.

Magistrate Norhidayati Mohammad Nasroh meted out the fine after they pleaded guilty to the charge, which was read out by the court interpreter.

All of them paid the fine.
