During a working session with competent authorities, Ha admitted her wrongdoing.

Ha said she was traveling on the street when she noticed it was filled with rubbish and decided to do a clean-up.

She then grabbed a broom, sweeping the street and eventually dumping the trash down to the nearby sewer.

As the action violates environmental protection regulations, local authorities decided to impose a fine upon Ha.

The woman was previously in charge of cleaning up the streets in the neighborhood and has retired.
