Malaysians are yet again calling out double standards in the enforcement of Covid-19 standard operating procedure (SOP) after seeing viral images of uniformed authorities allegedly breaking the rules.
One image posted by Twitter user muhdfrhan_la saw what appears to be a group of Kuala Lumpur City Council (DBKL) officers dining at a restaurant without properly physically distancing themselves from one another.
In the picture, five men in uniform were seen sitting together in relatively close proximity at the outdoor section of the eatery while being attended by what looks to be the waiter wearing a face mask.
Another image shared by Twitter user HezralRamli claimed to have witnessed the same offence being committed by a group of eight officers supposedly from the Sungai Petani Municipal Council (MPSPK) in Kedah, who were dining-in inside a local mamak stall.

Netizens seem to be pretty salty over the whole debacle with many asking for justice.
While other commenters claimed that they themselves had seen proof of law enforcement officials similarly breaching Covid-19 SOP, but are unsure of what to do with such information.

Breaching Covid-19 rules and guidelines is an offence under the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Act 1988 which can carry heavy fines and even jail time.
Malaysians witnessing any rule breaking are advised to immediately make a police report at any nearby police station or directly to the Health Ministry (MOH) through the Public Complaints Management System or SisPAA, HERE.
Alternatively, citizens can also lodge a complaint with the Enforcement Agency Integrity Commission (EAIC) if they witness any misconduct committed by Federal law enforcement officials and agencies such as the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM), Immigrations Department, Customs Department and others. Official complaints can be made online on the EAIC website, HERE.
Malaysians can similarly report misconducts made by civil servants from agencies such as Municipal Councils to the Public Complaints Bureau (PCB) on its official page, HERE.
