Today (20 May), celebrity couple Noor Neelofa Mohd Noor and her spouse, Muhammad Haris Mohd Ismail pleaded not guilty of breaking Covid-19 SOPs while shopping for carpets in Nilai, Seremban during the MCO.
Appearing this morning at the Seremban Magistrate’s Court, both were charged under Rule 19 of the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Regulations (conditional movement order) 2021 – which carries the maximum punishment of a RM50,000 fine or six-months in prison, or both, if found guilty.
Neelofa was released on a bail of RM5,000 for the offence of failing to check in with MySejahtera at the carpet shop, while her husband was bailed out for RM10,000 – paying RM5,000 for the same offence as his wife and another RM5,000 for failing to wear a face mask out in public.
Their next court appearance will be on 4 June.
Neelofa and her family gained public notoriety following continued allegations and subsequent charges of Covid-19 SOP breaches.
The most recent accusation made against the celebrity was that her family had supposedly broken SOPs (again) during Hari Raya Aidilfitri when 10 family members gathered to celebrate together despite not living in the same house.
And it’s not too far of the stretch to say that people are tired of the celebrity’s antics.
With more than 17,000 signatures (at the time of writing), Malaysians are petitioning to have Neelofa locked up in prison.
The petition comes with a statement that accuses the celebrity of insubordination and asks that the authorities immediately punish her without compromise to prove that there are no double standards when it comes to the law and VIPs.
The same calls to #PenjarakanNeelofa (put Neelofa in prison) have also been seen on social media.
Other celebrities are tired too
In an interview with mStar, celebrity Azwan Ali A.K.A. the fabulous Diva AA, condemned Neelofa and other personalities for their ‘stupidity’ and constant ignorance towards the law as well as the struggles faced by Malaysians during the pandemic.
In complete diva fashion, he urged for such people to be locked up in jail.
