KUALA LUMPUR: By-laws and standard operating procedures to curb alms-givers and beggars in the city streets will be announced very soon, Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor announced Thursday.

"We will not fine them (alms-givers) but when we come across those who give money on the street, we will issue them a receipt for RM150 and take the money, which I will then give to properly deserving people," he said during a press conference to present official appointment letters to representatives on the Non-Islam House of Worship committee in Menara DBKL here.
