(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) Twenty-three organisations including government and private establishments in the sultanate have come together for a campaign to end vandalism of public property.The campaign titled, 'Oman is a trust we should maintain' began in Ibri and will cover the country's interiors.


Initiating the campaign Mohammed bin Hamad al Busaidi, regional manager, Mazoon Electricity Company, Sharqiyah said, ''Twenty-three organisations have joined hands for this campaign. They also include the ROP and other law-enforcing agencies.''


Senior officials of the organisations which are part of the campaign said the initiative was taken after they felt there was an increase in the number of cases related to theft and vandalism of public property.  Vital public utilities infrastructure (electricity, water, telecom, waste water) are often the worst affected due to vandalism which is  mostly carried out for illegal trade of scrap. 


The Ministries of Commerce and Industry and Regional Municipalities and Water, Diwan of Royal Court and Muscat Municipality have also expressed their concern regarding this growing public menace.


Meanwhile in a statement, the Muscat Electricity Distribution Company, spearheading a similar drive in the capital region, has strongly advocated strict implementation of the Ministerial Decision regarding regulating scrap trade and export.
