Tun Mahathir Mohamad’s granddaughter, Meera Alyanna Mukhriz caused a stir this week after rumours circulated that she was arrested for violating the recovery movement control order (RMCO).
In addressing the news, Meera Alyanna’s (or Ally in short) dad, Mukhriz Mahathir, has confirmed that she and her husband, Ezran Daud Cheah, were among those detained at a pub raid in TTDI last weekend.
“It is true that my daughter and son-in-law were taken to the police station, along with 27 others for violating the order. All of them, including my daughter and son-in-law, were compounded RM1,000 each and have paid the fine, in accordance to the law,” said Mukhriz.
The former Kedah Menteri Besar added that he has already advised his kids to obey the rules. Despite that, he remarked that things had already taken place and the duo have also been reprimanded by the authorities.
“I have warned all of my family members against breaching the SOPs during the RMCO season, of course I am disappointed, but still, they have violated the rule. They have each been reprimanded and compounded by the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM),” the public figure was quoted as saying.
Ally has yet to address the matter, as she has since deactivated all of her social media accounts at the time of writing (Friday, 28th August).
