The police and magistrates’ courts have with immediate effect increased fines for criminal offences by 100 percent.

According to the new figures, an accused person will now pay minimum of RTGS$20 admission of guilt fine for Level One offences from a previous charge of $10 and a maximum of RTGS$$10 000 for Level 14 offences from RTGS$5 000. The new fines were published in the Government Gazette recently and have since become law.

The new standard scale applies only to offences committed on or after the date it became law, i.e. on or after 20th February. The previous standard scale will continue to apply to offences committed before 20th February and on or after the 23rd March 2017.
