Pub + Nightclub Fine Quietly Cut To RM5K + RM25K!

On 17 March 2021, when the Malaysian government announced the three categories of offences, they set the fine for those breaking the pub and nightclub ban very high :

On 22 March 2021, they quietly slashed the fine for breaking the pub and nightclub ban by half!

While this may be a relief for those already hit with the massive RM 10K or RM 50K fine earlier, it is still a considerable sum of money.

Please note that the ban includes any restaurants or cafes within the pub or nightclub.

Since 8 February 2021, pubs and nightclubs are no longer allowed to serve food or drinks at their restaurants, or even offer takeaway!

But apparently, pubs have now switched their licences to restaurants and eateries that serve alcohol, bypassing this ban.
