Company, permanent resident fined for littering

James Kon

A company and an individual were each levied a compound fine by personnel of Law Enforcement Unit of Bandar Seri Begawan (BSB) Municipal Department after they were found to have violated the Minor Offences Act Section 12(1) Chapter 30 of disposing rubbish in public places of BSB and Gadong during a routine operation.

Syarikat Tasanne Food Manufacturer was slapped with a compound fine of BND200 and permanent resident Lim Chong Yam was slapped with a fine of BND100.

They need to settle the compound fine within seven days at the BSB Municipal Department. Failure to do so, the case will be brought to court and would be imposed a fine of BND1,000, or a month’s imprisonment, for the first offence.

For subsequent offences, the penalty is a fine of BND3,000 and a prison term of up to three months.
