Petaling Street raided again: DBKL special op targets food premises, four compounds issued

KUALA LUMPUR: The Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) has once again conducted a special operation targeting food premises in Petaling Street yesterday.

In a Facebook post, DBKL said that four restaurants were penalised for illegally placing chairs, tables, mobile stalls, canopies and gas cylinders in pedestrian walkways.

"This special relocation operation was led by the DBKL Enforcement Department director, Noor Azman Mahlin, along with 32 officers and members, targeting business premises that committed obstruction offences.

"The operation also targeted premises operating without a licence, managed by foreign nationals," the post added.

According to the announcement, a total of four compounds were issued under Section 46 of the Street, Drainage and Building Act 1974, and one notice under the Advertisement By-laws 1982, as well as six under the Road Traffic Rules 1959.

"A total of 80 items were seized and relocated to the DBKL Seizure Storage on Jalan Lombong, Taman Miharja, Cheras for record and documentation.

"DBKL reminds all business premises owners to ensure that licensing conditions are always adhered to and not to create any obstruction in public places and pathways," it said.
