Just because authorities are now pre-occupied with patrolling to ensure that citizens are abiding by the SOPs of the CMCO, doesn’t mean they’re closing one eye on other illegal crimes.
Recently, the Johor Police left a witty comment on a post in Facebook group, Anak-anak Muar, when a netizen tried to sell some illegal firecrackers online. The online seller promoted the variety of mercun they had in stock, in hopes of attracting buyers on the private Facebook group.
However, the buyers who expressed their interest weren’t exactly the kind of customers they were looking for.
The Muar Police used their official Facebook account to respond to the post sarcastically, “49 shoot 5 sets can. Deliver it to the Muar Police Station.”
Authorities then took to their own Facebook page to release an official statement warning from Bukit Aman, cautioning citizens against the buying and selling of dangerous firecrackers online.
According to the Explosives Act 1957, those who manufacture, possess or import firecrackers and fireworks without a permit can be charged under Section 7 and 8. Violators of this act could face a RM10,000 fine or a five-year prison term. On the other hand, offenders who are caught using firecrackers and fireworks could face one month of jail time or a RM100 fine under Section 3 (5) of the Minor Offences Act 1955, following sources from NST.
The only firecrackers that aren’t banned in Malaysia are the relatively safe “pop-pop” fireworks and “Happy Boom/Magic Pop” firecrackers.
Looks like our PDRM officers are sharper and wittier than you think!
