Two tourists among 48 rounded up for littering

SEMPORNA, Jan 14 (Bernama) -- Two women from China were among 48 individuals who have been fined for littering in Semporna town areas. 

Semporna district officer Bianus Kontong said the tourists, along with 32 other individuals, paid a RM100 fine on the spot after they were caught for the offence during ‘Ops Payung Bersepadu’. 

“The remaining 16 offenders have chosen to do an hour of community service by picking litter while wearing a vest with the word ‘monyet’ (monkey) written on the back,” said Bianus during a speech at a meeting of public servants and Semporna district customary heads with Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal, here, today.

Bianus said chronic littering in Semporna have forced the district’s authorities to resort to more aggressive methods to curb the problem. 

He also added that the community service may be increased to two hours in the near future, while customary heads in Semporna district who are unable to handle the problem may be relieved of their position.....
