Over 2,000 illegal advertisements were removed by the council during their operation on Thursday in SS2.


THE Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) removed over 2,000 illegal advertisements in SS2 area during a recent operation there.

Enforcement officers removed bunting and banners placed along roads and on electric poles.

Council Enforcement and Safety Department director Mohd Fauzi Maarop said many illegal advertisements were placed on trees, electric poles, public phone booths and on traffic lights poles.

He added that action would be taken under the MBPJ Advertisement By-Law 2007 and under the council’s vandalism by-law.

Mohd Fauzi added that MBPJ had a committee to monitor illegal advertisements and that they worked with other parties too including the police and the Malaysian Com-munications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC).

He said 743,021 illegal advertisements were taken down between January and July 31 which were on money-lending services.

“These illegal advertisements tarnishes the image of the city and obscures the view of drivers as they are sometimes placed in road junctions and at traffic lights,” he said, adding that the council had also issued 136 compounds and sent 4,319 telephone numbers found on illegal advertisements to the MCMC for further action.

To date, MCMC has taken action on more than 400 of the numbers provided.

“Last year, we sent more than 8,000 numbers to MCMC.”

“The council has also done some undercover work and has nabbed four individuals putting up illegal advertisements this year,” he said, adding that they were issued a maximum compound of RM1,000.

Mohd Fauzi added that future operations would target commercial areas before moving to residential areas.

Council Enforcement and Safety Department deputy director Johari Khir Jamaludin said the council aimed to remove 1.5 million advertisements by the end of the year.

Among the hotspots for illegal advertisements are SS21, SS2, PJU 5 Kota Damansara, PJU 10 Damansara Damai and Section 14 Petaling Jaya.

MBPJ had also taken action on those who had breached the conditions of their licences such as placing them at areas not approved by the council and more than the amount allowed.

Illegal advertisement committee chairman Suriase Gengiah said legal action would be taken on those who held fake permits.
