PETALING JAYA: A trust fund – the Kumpulan Wang Alam Sekitar – will be set up under Section 70 of the proposed new environment law that can be used, among others, to pay off informers of environment crime.

It is suggested that the monies under the fund – to be placed under the federal Consolidated Fund – will be made up of government allocations, both overseas and local donations and contributions, and all fees and payments received by the Department of Environment (DoE) director-general from the cess levied.
