MUKHRIZ Mahathir’s daughter, Meera Alyanna Mukhriz, has apologised for breaching recovery movement-control order (RMCO) procedures by staying out past the 12pm closing time at an eatery.

“I am profusely sorry. Breaking the 12am curfew was not only foolish on my part, but entirely irresponsible considering the current pandemic we are going through,” she wrote in an Instagram post.

“There are absolutely no excuses for my actions and you have every right to be disappointed, but it does not exceed the disappointment I have for myself.”

Meera Alyanna, popularly known as Ally, said that together with her husband and two other friends, they were at the Salute pub in Taman Tun Dr Ismail on August 21 to celebrate a friend’s birthday.

Police came at 1.30am and took everyone present to the police station, where they were each fined RM1,000. She said there were 29 others, besides she and her husband, who were processed at the police station.

“As of Tuesday, August 25, my husband and I have paid our fines,” Meera Alyanna said.

Her public apology came a day after Mukhriz acknowledged that his daughter was the daughter of a VIP arrested for breaching the RMCO at a pub in TTDI.

He also expressed disappointment at his daughter and son-in-law’s actions, saying: “They deserved to be compounded”.

The RMCO has been extended until December 31, Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin announced yesterday. – August 29, 2020.
