The Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee has proposed fining those publicly urinating or littering using footage captured by available surveillance cameras. 

This is one of the city’s proposals concerning environmental issues sent to the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment to draw up a new resolution replacing the National Assembly’s Resolution 54.

The city suggested allowing the People’s Committees at all levels in the city to use surveillance cameras to detect those urinating or littering in unauthorized places.

In addition, images from these cameras should be used as evidence to impose fines on violators.

More than 42,300 surveillance cameras have been installed across Ho Chi Minh City.

Therefore, the use of these cameras to detect and fine those violating environmental protection regulations is necessary, news site Zing News reported, citing the municipal Department of Natural Resources and Environment.

Under Government Decree 45/2022/ND-CP on penalties for administrative violations against environmental protection regulations, those urinating or defecating in unauthorized places will be fined between VND150,000 (US$6) and VND250,000 ($10).

The city also suggested piloting a plan to cut the water and electricity supply for the production activities of those breaching environmental protection regulations to coerce them to implement decisions on their administrative penalties and deal with the consequences of their violations.

The Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee also proposed the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment give the city the autonomy to approve the appraisal of environmental impact assessment reports and issue environmental licenses for investment projects which are assigned to the city by the National Assembly and the prime minister.
