THE earlier policy flip-flops on approval letters for essential sectors to operate during the lockdown are still impacting business owners, with two of them fined recently for allegedly not having approval letters issued through the International Trade and Industry Ministry’s (Miti) one-stop system.

On June 14, two weeks into the movement-control order (MCO), a cafe and a bubble tea shop in SS2, Petaling Jaya, were fined RM10,000 each by the Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry on June 14, despite having Miti approval letters, Kg Tunku rep Lim Yi Wei said.
