Selangor is offering a reward totalling RM20,000 to the public for information on environmental crimes that can lead to the arrest of the perpetrators.

Menteri Besar Amirudin Shari said the reward is being offered to get the public’s involvement in combating environmental crime in the state.

He said information is needed for the authorities to arrest the perpetrators so that legal action can be taken against them.

“The state government has formulated various short-term, medium-term and long-term strategies to minimise the impact of river pollution on the people in Selangor.

“With public support and involvement, a joint responsibility to conserve water resources will be more effective and hopefully be able to curb these unethical criminal activities,” he said in a Facebook post today.

On Nov 10, the environment and water ministry offered a reward of RM5,000 to anyone who could provide information and evidence leading to the arrest of those responsible for causing pollution at the raw water source in Selangor, resulting in water supply disruption in the state.
