Night markets, bazaars to reopen in stages in beginning June 15 - KL mayor

KUALA LUMPUR: The Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) has decided to allow open markets, morning markets, night markets and bazaars to reopen in stages beginning June 15 during the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO).

Kuala Lumpur Mayor Datuk Nor Hisham Ahmad Dahlan (pix) said the reopening of the markets and bazaars were subject to approval to operate for selected locations.

“Applications must be submitted to the DBKL Licensing and Petty Traders Development Department from June 10 and must comply with the standard operating procedures (SOP) set by DBKL, National Security Council and Ministry of Health.

“They will be ordered to close immediately if fail to comply with the regulations and SOP,“ he said in a statement today.

He said during RMCO, under the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur petty traders licensing by-laws, DBKL may from time to time impose additional conditions on the licence.

“Enforcement actions including seizing equipment and closing open markets, morning markets, night markets or bazaars under the Local Government Act 1976 are possible,” he said. -Bernama
