13 Arrested For Violating The MCO For A Haircut

If you’re the type who goes to the hair salon or barbershop often before the MCO, we understand how frustrating it can be that your hair is growing longer than usual, and you can’t go get it cut or trimmed.

But please don’t even try to think about going out to visit the barbershop because you can get arrested by the authorities! 

Thirteen men who couldn’t wait for the MCO to be lifted have been arrested, for trying to get a haircut at a secretly operating barbershop in Jalan Mengkuang, Butterworth. 

According to The Star, Seberang Perai Utara OCPD Asst Comm Noorzainy Mohd Noor said, a team of police from the North Seberang Perai police headquarters raided the shop, acting from a tip-off from the public. 

Three out of the thirteen arrested include two hairdressers and the barbershop owner, and ten customers who were in the premises waiting for their turn for a haircut.

He added that the shop was operating covertly and customers were allowed to enter and wait their turn for a haircut.

Please abide by the MCO if we want this to be over soon. You can get your hair cut as many times as you want once the MCO is lifted. 

Take care of yourself, and stay at home!
