The Enforcement Division at the Kuala Belait and Seria Municipal Board issued a BND500 compound fine to an eatery over an overflowing grease trap on March 16, which was a violation under Section 12 (1)(c), Chapter 30 of the Miscellaneous Offences Act.

The eatery was discovered to have allowed the grease trap to overflow, resulting in wastewater, food and cooking oil flowing into a nearby drainage, enforcement officials said.

The eatery was given seven days to settle the fine. Failure to do so will result in the case being forwarded to the court.

If found guilty, the accused will be handed a further BND1,000 fine or a month’s imprisonment, while subsequent offences will see a BND3,000 fine or imprisonment of no more than three months.
