Yesterday’s anti-vaxxer social experiment couple landed themselves in jail after trying to get away with doing recreational outdoor activities without being vaccinated and posting it on facebook.
For those who don’t know what I’m talking about, catch up on the article here.
The couple, aged 35 and 36, were detained by the Klang Selatan police after a Facebook posting detailing their trip to the premises with their child to see if they would be denied entry into the premises.
Klang Selatan police chief Assistant Commissioner Shamsul Amar Ramli said the duo were apprehended at their Bandar Putera 2 home at about 5pm.
“We received complaints of the viral posting in which she claimed she had entered several premises and was allowed to dine-in with her child and husband although they have yet to receive their two doses of vaccine,” he said.
The woman wrote on a Facebook status that in her series of social experiments, she was given entry to several premises, including a convenience store, while her husband had gotten a haircut, alleging that their vaccination status was not checked by the operators.
She wrote that they had gone to the eatery to see if they would be turned away, adding that they had put on a confident front as though they had “received three vaccine doses.”
“We sat, ate, drank and left. Who said you cannot dine-in if you do not have two doses? Without the two doses, we could safely dine-in this morning. What is impossible? Nothing,” she wrote.
“Apart from uploading pictures of them eating at the premises, she had also written things that could create fear and worry among the people,” said Amar, adding that the couple was subsequently released on police bail.
“We are investigating under Section 269 and Section 505(b) of the Penal Code, Section 22 (b) of the Infectious Disease Control and Prevention Act 1988 and Section 233 of the Malaysian Communication Commission Act,” he said in a statement on Tuesday (Aug 24).
He urged the public to comply with all Covid-19 standard operating procedures (SOPs) to curb the spread of the virus.
Justice served? Padan muka.
