James Kon

A foreigner was issued a BND300 compound fine recently by the Law Enforcement Unit of the Bandar Seri Begawan (BSB) Municipal Department after he was found to have violated the Minor Offences Act Chapter 30, Section 12 (1) (d).

Enforcement officers found Bangladesh national Mohammad Robiul Islam disposing construction waste behind the Regent Square Building. The offender was ordered to settle the fine within seven days. Failure to do so will result in a further fine of BND1,000 or a month’s imprisonment for the first convicted offence. For subsequent offences, the penalty is a BND3,000 fine and a prison term of up to three months.
