07 Jan SFES warns of fines up to SR3000 for setting fire to undesignated places
The Special Forces for Environmental Security (SFES) has warned that fines up to SR3000 will be slapped on anyone who violates the Environmental Law by setting fire to undesignated places.
The announcement from the SFES urges all the public and visitors of wild parks to preserve the vegetation cover and not to set on fire without taking the necessary precautions in undesignated places.
The SFES noted that such acts are considered as violations of the executive regulations for the development of vegetation cover and combating desertification. As such, anyone found to be breaching these regulations can expect to be issued with a fine of up to SR3000.
The SFES have also asked the public to play their part and report any cases that constitute an attack on the environment or wildlife. Those wishing to report a breach of the Environmental Law can contact the SFES on the number 911 in the regions of Makkah and Riyadh, and the numbers of 999 or 996 in all other regions of the Kingdom.
