under a new environmental law that came into effect in Kuwait on Sunday. The controversial legislation also includes a KD 250 ($860) fine for picking flowers, while littering or causing the death of marine and land fauna will incur a KD 500 fine for each penalty, and smoking in closed and semi-closed public areas a KD 100 fine. Other violations include noise and sea pollution.

A new police force division also has been established to monitor the new rules. The legislation was approved by the previous parliament and came into effect on Sunday. The Environmental Protection Authority’s deputy director for technical affairs, Mohammed Al Enezi, said the body also had new powers to refer government organisations for investigation if they were believed to be negligent or lenient in enforcing the new rules.

“Violators will be severely punished as well,” he said, according to Kuwait Times.
