Police and Rela personnel found the trio to be involved in interstate travel without permission amidst Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO).
On the morning of Thursday, 21 May, three cyclists chose to enjoy some interstate cycling movement for undisclosed reasons.
The cyclists aged between 30 and 40— in sportswear and safety gears — were cycling from Ampang in Selangor to Jelebu in Negeri Sembilan. They were crossing state borders without travel permission from any authority.
The cyclists — all men — were confined at the passage of Kampung Chennah at about 10am on Thursday, New Straits Times reported on Friday evening, 22 May.
According to Jelebu District Police Chief Deputy Superintendent Maslan Udin, when the police personnel patrolling the area enquired the trio, they failed to furnish a reasonable explanation.
Now they each have to pay RM1,000 fine.
They have been charged under Section 25 Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Act 1988.
The trio are required to pay their compound at the Jelebu district Health Centre by 3 June.However, if they fail to do so, police will take legal action against them.
Meanwhile, Maslan reminded that interstate travel, without the permission of the police, is still not permitted amidst the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO). It also includes cycling.
