Daniel Lim

The Department of Environment, Parks and Recreation (JASTRe) issued a BND500 fine to an individual for littering at Simpang 633, Kampong Masin yesterday.

Sintu Howlader was seen disposing trash and used construction material.

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

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.

The department issued a similar fine earlier last week to an individual for littering near the area.
