Minister for Waterways and Environment, Doctor Mahendra Reddy says he has just asked the Permanent Secretary for Environment to start the process of prosecution for the now-suspended Fiji FA senior official caught on video after allegedly disposing waste on the beachside.

Doctor Reddy says this is a serious matter and they will not spare anyone who engages in such reckless activity. He says they have given ample warning to members of the public that they must properly dispose of their waste.

Doctor Reddy says anyone found disposing their waste in public places or in our pristine environment will be dealt with.

He says they are shocked to learn a highly educated person allegedly planned and undertook disposal of household waste on a public beach.

Doctor Reddy also wishes to thank the person who has got this act on camera and is asking all members of public to send them videos of people who are caught red-handed throwing litter in public.

He promises swift action on those caught in such irresponsible behaviour.
