The Department of Environment, Parks and Recreation (JASTRe) issued a BND300 compound fine to an individual for littering at Kampong Batu Marang on Tuesday.

Muhammad Yusri bin Metussin was caught through a nearby CCTV disposing trash at a public premise.

A fine was issued under Section 12(1), Chapter 30 of the Miscellaneous Offences Act, and seven days were given to settle the fine.

The failure to do so will result in the case being brought to court.

If found guilty, a further fine of no less than BND1,000 and no more than BND3,000 will be handed, while subsequent offences will see a penalty fine of no less than BND3,000 and no more than BND9,000 or imprisonment of no less than six months.

JASTRe reminded the public and companies to be responsible in ensuring the cleanliness of the surrounding environment is maintained.
