One Day More
The headliners in today's The Brunei Times
So what's the motive behind the 35 detainees? This is pretty unusual that they have 70 weapons in their possession and there were even children involved judging from the picture taken and published in today's The Brunei Times. There was also evidence of drug abuse where 5 of them were under the suspicion.
The weapons that were detained by the Royal Brunei Police Force were butterfly knives, knuckle dusters, machetes and even Katana, a sword used by Samurais. It was a four hour operation where 300 officers were involved. Kudos to the relevant agencies especially to the RBPF, the Narcotic Control Bureau, the Internal Security Department, Royal Customs and Excise Department and the Immigration and National Registration Department.
