Muscat: In a statement issued by Oman Public Prosecution said: Dear citizens and residents. Begging at mosques, roads, stores and public areas is a crime punishable by imprisonment for a period up-to one year and a fine of one hundred Omani rials RO100.

The court may confiscate the money seized from the offender and order to deport him from the country if he is a foreigner.
