The TTPS says it is searching for a woman who filmed herself on a beach, apparently in breach of the current COVID-19 Public Health Ordinance.
In a social media post, the woman claimed to be at “a private beach” owned by her family and insisted that their presence there was not a threat to anyone else. The woman then turned revealing at least three other people on the beach. The video was posted under the Instagram handle “samimami303”.
The TTPS in response posted on social media reminding persons that “ALL beaches, rivers, and water parks remain closed in accordance with the Public Health Ordinance regulations” It added that “there is nothing such as a Private or Public beach. The TTPS called on anyone with information on the identity or whereabouts of the person in the video to contact the Police at 999, 555, the Police App or WhatsApp 482-GARY.”
In a subsequent post, the Instagram account from which the video originated expressed the following : “People I’m asking that you please don’t flood my inbox with your DM’s. I know what’s happening, please give me a chance”.
