A 36-YEAR -OLD Bangladeshi received a three-month jail sentence yesterday with three strokes of the cane for overstaying.
Magistrate Hjh Ervy Sufitriana Hj Abdul Rahman heard that Ali Azgar Montaz Uddin overstayed in Brunei by 444 days since the expiry of a special pass that was issued to him for the purpose of renewing his passport.
The defendant lost his passport and got hold of a special pass issued by the Immigration pending its renewal.
The defendant then also lost the special pass and did not renew the pass until he obtained a new passport.
He said he did not think it was necessary to renew the special pass since he already received the new passport.
