Daniel Lim

The Department of Environment, Parks and Recreation (JASTRe) issued a BND300 compound fine on an individual on June 1 for disposing trash at a public premise in Kampong Batu Marang.

Rinosophiaan bin Tajuddin, caught on CCTV tossing trash at the public premise, was fined under Chapter 30, Section 12(1) of the Miscellaneous Offences Act. The individual was given seven days to settle the fine, and 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 of no less than BND3,000 and no more than BND9,000 fine or imprisonment of no less than six months.
