In order to dissuade others and promote a clean environment, the officer has asked courts to impose high fines on sellers, buyers, and users of the papers.

He saw that some people purchased the papers from the bordering nations, crossed the border illegally at night, and then sold them to small-scale vendors to package food.

The officer claimed that the fight against illicit plastic bags was defeated when sellers who were found guilty received low fines, encouraging them to carry on with their businesses.

He cautioned the public against using the papers to transport food products, emphasizing that they also ran the possibility of being detained and prosecuted, just like vendors.
