    ACTOR Mustaqim Bahadon has been issued with a compound of RM1,000 for removing his face mask in a public space.

    According to Mustaqim, 35, he was alone in the motorcycle parking area opposite a barber shop he owned in Wangsa Maju, Kuala Lumpur, on Sunday.

    “In the afternoon, I asked a worker to cut my hair. While waiting for the worker to get his equipment ready, I went out for a while to smoke an e-cigarette at the motorbike parking area, which was right in front of the shop.

    “Not even a minute later, the authorities came around and said that I had violated the standard operating procedure (SOP) because I wasn’t wearing a mask. They issued me a compound for RM1,000.

    “At the time I was alone, there wasn’t anyone with me. I thought I could remove my mask for a while but apparently that was an offence, ” he told mStar, the Malay news portal of The Star.

    Even though he was fined, Mustaqim said he accepted it.

    “I apologise and I must admit that I took off my mask, although it was for a little while.

    “I took it easy as I thought I was complying with the SOP and not disturbing anyone but apparently it was an offence.

    “I accept it with an open heart because I was wrong to remove my mask although there wasn’t anyone around.

    “I don’t blame the authorities, ” he said.

    The actor of the Cinta Sekali Lagi drama also advised everyone not to forget the SOP during the conditional movement control order.
