We know that various government agencies work closely together to enforce the current COVID-19 pandemic restrictions.

However, certain civil servants seem to have missed the memo as they have been caught violating the very rule they are supposed to be upholding.

Free Malaysia Today (FMT) reported that police nabbed 62 people, including 18 civil servants, who were partying at an entertainment centre in Puchong Jaya, until the wee hours of Saturday morning.

These include 13 policemen - a police corporal, six lance corporals and six constables, including a female traffic constable, two fire and rescue services department personnel attached to the Bukit Jalil and Pudu stations, and an army commando ranked sergeant who serves as an escort to a top army officer.

Also nabbed during the 1.40am raid are 25 women and eight employees of the entertainment centre, including a 17-year-old. One person reportedly tested positive methamphetamine and police also seized liquor bottles, cartons of beer, and even a deejay deck, from the venue.

All 62 revellers have been slapped with a RM5,000 compound notice each for violating COVID-19 protocols, while the offenders attached to the enforcement agencies are expected to be suspended from their duty pending investigations.

This is reminiscent of the incident in July where the Bangi police station chief and three corporals were arrested after holding a party at a police station in Kajang, while getting high on ganja, ketum water, and alcohol. Also involved in the party were four civilian women, pornography, song and dance.

It is a crying shame indeed that individuals who are supposed to be upholding the law are violating it without a care in the world.

Let's just hope that these errant men and women will be dealt with accordingly.
