Establishment of DAP Johor legal team led by Pang Hok Liong, Member of Parliament for Labis

Media Statement by Liew Chin Tong, DAP Johor Chairman on 19 March 2021

The harsh reality of the rakyat being unfairly slapped with compounds of RM10,000 effective 11.3.2021 for “breaching” SOP has set in as many receive such compounds issued by enforcers in a state of shock. Many complain that the compounds were issued on unjustified and flimsy grounds. The DAP views such an increase in SOP violation compound to RM10,000 is most unjust and uncalled for when the rakyat are still struggling to put food on the table during this challenging Covid-19 pandemic. Even a 17 years old girl was not spared from being issued a RM10,000 compound, adding another name to the list of victims. 

DAP takes the lead in this fight against injustice by providing free legal services to those who received such compounds. I am glad to announce DAP Johor has set up a legal team led by Pang Hok Liong, the MP for Labis, to provide all necessary legal assistance to those who have been unfairly and unreasonably fined. Those who require assistance from our team can contact us at 017-2552063, dap.biroundangundang@gmail.com or fill up your details at https://tinyurl.com/AduanKompaunDAP.

The authority should educate the rakyat on ways to fight and contain the virus instead of just trying to relentlessly justify its criminalisation of SOP violation. The issuing of compounds on the slightest of grounds by some trigger-happy law enforcers should stop immediately.
