A Malaysian man was found guilty for five charges under the Passports Act, the Immigration Act, the Customs Order, and the Infectious Diseases Act and the Road Traffic Act.
Investigations conducted by various authorities revealed that on the 24th May, Sim Eng Huat, a 45-year-old Malaysian was driving a Malaysian registered car, and entered the country via the Sungai Tujoh Control Post. He refused to stop for immigration and customs inspection and avoided health examinations. His actions were reported to the Royal Brunei Police Force and was later detained. Laboratory analysis of the defendant’s urine showed that he was under the influence of Methylamphetamine at the time. The court sentenced the defendant to eight months imprisonment and three strokes of the cane.
