He has been given seven days to settle the fine. Failure to do so will result in a BND1,000 fine or one month of imprisonment. For subsequent offences, the penalty is a BND3,000 fine or a prison term of not more than three months.

The public and business owners are urged to dispose of waste and unwanted items in designated areas, to maintain the cleanliness of the surrounding environment.
