Just when you thought his 15 minutes of infamy is over, well, you're wrong.
Pasir Salak MP Datuk Seri Tajuddin Abdul Rahman has made the headlines again for the wrong reasons.
The 73-year-old was once again spotted not wearing a face mask in public - this time, in the lobby of the Parliament on Tuesday (27 July).
According to Malay Mail
, Tajuddin caught the eyes of the authorities when a picture of him standing in the Parliament lobby without a mask on went viral on social media site Twitter.
Sentul police chief Assistant Commissioner Beh Eng Lai confirmed the incident, and Tajuddin will be issued a compound for clearly defying the COVID-19 standard operating procedures (SOPs) set by the government.
"Further investigations were conducted on the posting which was detected around 10am today and found that Datuk Seri Tajuddin Abdul Rahman had attended the special parliament sitting on July 26.
"At around 2.30pm the same day, the lawmaker was found not wearing a face mask when he was accompanying an unidentified individual at the Parliament lobby.
"On the above violation, a fine was issued against him today at 1pm," Beh said in a statement quoted by Malay Mail
However, Lai did not mention how much Tajuddin would have to fork out for the fine, saying that the fine amount will be determined by the district health officer.
Considering this is Tajuddin's second offence -- he was fined RM1,500
when he showed up at a press conference without a face mask back in June -- the lawmaker should be looking at a RM10,000 fine as stipulated in the Emergency (Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases) (Amendment) Ordinance 2021.
Let's wait and see if Tajuddin will be getting just another slap on the wrist this time.
