Awie's manager admits to SOP breach, says fine paid


PETALING JAYA: The manager of Malaysian rock legend Datuk Ahmad Azhar Othman - better known as Awie (pic) - has admitted that his client and several others had violated Covid-19 standard operating procedure (SOP) recently.

“We made a mistake and flouted the standard operating procedure (SOP), we admitted it and paid the fine, ” Awie’s manager Mubarak Akhtar said in a short recording sent to the media on Sunday (May 9).

He was responding to a report by Sinar Harian over action being taken involving Awie after a police report was lodged over a 42-second viral video.

The video purportedly shows Awie and several individuals flouting the recovery MCO SOP while attending a humanitarian mission ceremony at a hotel in Jalan Hang Tuah, Melaka recently involving trishaw riders.

“What are we to do if such things are bound to happen. This was a mission to help the trishaw riders.

“They asked Awie to sing but Awie did not want to sing. So we played a music video in the front, ” Mubarak explained.

He said that Awie then stood up beside his table and was besieged by the trishaw riders.

Melaka state CID chief Asst Comm Mohd Sukri Kaman had confirmed earlier on Sunday that those involved in the event, including Awie and the organiser of the programme, would be called to Melaka Tengah police headquarters to give a statement. - Star
