The Health Ministry has dished out a compound of RM1,000 towards DAP supremo Lim Kit Siang for failing to adhere to the standard operating procedures (SOPs).
“Compound has been issued against @limkitsiang,” Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin Abu Bakar wrote on his Twitter today.
The Iskandar Puteri parliamentarian was fined for hugging several DAP delegates during DAP’s 17th National Congress last weekend.
Lim and Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was tested positive for Covid-19 after attending the event.
In the same tweet, Khairy also appeared to take a jibe at former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, reminding him to pay up for the compounds issued towards him during the recently concluded Johor state election campaigns.
Kompaun sudah dikeluarkan kepada @limkitsiang. KKM juga harap @NajibRazak bayar satu kompaun yang dikeluarkan semasa PRN Johor yang masih belum settle. KKM juga harap @NajibRazak menerima 4 lagi kompaun yang dihantar melalui pos daftar yang pegawai DS enggan terima sebelum ini. https://t.co/6wS3eO3lOK pic.twitter.com/xXFql3u8Io— Khairy Jamaluddin 🇲🇾🌺 (@Khairykj) March 22, 2022
“MOH hopes @NajibRazak will pay up one compound issued during the Johor state election which has not been settled.
“MOH also hopes @NajibRazak has received four other compounds sent by registered post which his officer refused to accept earlier,” he wrote.
Responding to the matter, Najib questions why Khairy’s ministry fails to issue the same compound towards other DAP members for breaching the same SOP as Lim did.
“Why only Kit Siang was fined? That too, with only a RM1,000 compound that was issued yesterday. But, there were plenty of party members hugging him,” wrote Najib in his Facebook posting.
Najib also questions why Khairy would relate the compound issued to Lim with him.
“I’m puzzled as to why he related Kit Siang’s fine to me but I will pay all five compounds issued against me,” he added.
