A burger seller was recently slapped with a RM50,000 fine while running his stall outside of his house in Kampung Rambutan Rendang, Kota Bharu, Kelantan.
The man, Wan Mohd Faisal Wan Kadir, took to his Facebook to detail the unfortunate incident. He also accompanied his post with a letter of summon he received from the authorities.
As seen in the photo of the compound ticket shared on Faisal’s FB page, Faisal Burger, he was fined for “running a food outlet outside of his home and exceeding the Movement Control Order (MCO) time limit.” Additionally, the man is required to pay the compound by 9th May 2021.
“What a test for this fasting month. I was selling burgers in front of the stairs to my house. Around 11pm, the police arrived. I was fined RM50,000 for selling burgers. May my family and I be blessed. There’s a silver lining behind this. I only sell burgers to pay monthly bills,” he remarked.
This even caught Syed Saddiq’s attention, who took to his Twitter to express his regret upon seeing the news. The Muar MP questioned, “A burger seller was compounded RM50k?? Previously, a group of students were fined RM1.5k. How do you expect them to find money to pay for the compound(s)? Why were there no discretion and reprimands if they did something wrong?”
