: The standard operating procedure (SOP) on the Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebration during the enforcement of the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) applies to everyone regardless of one's social standing.
Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said the SOP did not make a distinction between common people and the affluent citizens.
He gave the assurance that the police would investigate any violation of the SOP, including those committed by the dignitaries.
“There is no difference between the 'cluster from the high skies' and the 'cluster on Earth’ ... they are all the same. Whoever did wrong will be subject to action by the authorities.
"We leave it to the police to do their job," he told a media conference here on Wednesday.
Based on some pictures posted on social media, there were dignitaries and nobles who were alleged to have violated the Aidilfitri SOP including the practice of social distancing and the number of guests above the allowed limit on the first day of raya.
On April 18, Ismail Sabri was reported to have said that no one would be above the law and escape action if found to have violated the rules.
