Litterbugs caught, fined

James Kon

Three Indonesian nationals were fined BND100 each by the Bandar Seri Begawan Municipal Department for littering recently.

The three foreigners were caught disposing rubbish in public areas around the capital and were charged under Section 12 (1) Chapter 30 of Minor Offences Act.

The offenders were given seven days to settle their fines at the department. Failure to do so will incur further fines of BND1,000 or a month’s imprisonment for the first convicted offence. Subsequent offences will see penalties of BND3,000 and up to three months’ imprisonment.
