Be prepared to fork out $50,000 or jail time of up to six months if you pick up fruits dropped on the ground from trees in nature reserves or national parks in Singapore. Minister Lawrence Wong said this on 7 October.
It makes no difference whether you plucked it from a tree or picked it off the ground. The tree is located on state land and therefore belonged to the state. For those who wish to do so might want to approach NParks for permission.
What a vast difference in those molesters and peeping toms in Singapore, no? How are molesters getting a smaller punishment as compared to these people? Just because these fruits and trees belong to the state? Obviously their things are more of a concern to them than the people. Though we have long learnt of this fact. They just want to get more money from us in any way possible.
