Do not intentionally fabricate and disseminate, or spread false information about the epidemic on purpose, otherwise one may assume criminal liability

In view of the state of immediate prevention which the Macao SAR Government is still undergoing at the moment, the Civil Protection Operations Centre calls on the public that they must not deliberately fabricate and disseminate the related false information, and intend to arouse public fear or disturbance, or spread the related information even though they are fully aware that they are false enough to give rise to public fear or disturbance, otherwise they may contravene Article 26 of Law no. 11/2020 (Civil Protection Legal Regime) and assume criminal liability. Members of the public are advised to stay tuned to the official messages and information and must not believe in rumours.
