KUALA TERENGGANU: A spa owner was fined RM30,000 by the Sessions Court yesterday for providing unregistered private medical clinic services last year.

She was charged under Section 4(1) of Act 586 and can be punished under Section 5(1) of the same act which provides for a fine of up to RM300,000 or imprisonment for up to six years, or both, if convicted.

Meanwhile, in the same court, three women, Murni Nur Akma Idrus, 25, Syarafina Syafirah Razilah, 27, and Siti Sarah Dian Ali, 42, each pleaded not guilty to similar charges at three different locations around Kuala Terengganu and Kuala Nerus in June, July and October 2022.

The court fixed bail for each of them at RM5,000 bail with one surety and set April 23 for mention of the case.
