As we are in the midst of the crazy haze conditions that are expected to last till October, the authorities have implemented a temporary ban nationwide on all forms of open burning, not including cremations and religious rituals with IMMEDIATE EFFECT.

This is an attempt to reduce the harmful effects of the haze.

Department of Environment director-general Norlin Jaafar said that this ban is enforced under the Environment Quality Act 1974, which would require violators to pay a fine of up to RM500,000 or serve a sentence of no more than five years in prison per offence.

“All parties are requested not to conduct open burning, or allow entry or trespass into their property and premises by irresponsible quarters that lead to open burning, either intentional or otherwise,” she said.
