    The Department of Environment, Parks and Recreation (JASTRe) issued a BND300 fine to an individual on September 22 for littering in a public area at Simpang 633, Kampong Masin.

    The individual, identified as Md Anowar Hossen Md Rojan Ali Khan, was discovered by the department to have disposed of construction material in a public space.

    The fine was issued under Section 12(1), Chapter 30 of the Miscellaneous Offences Act.

    The man was 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.

    JASTRe reminded the public and companies to maintain the cleanliness of the surrounding environment.
