A 45-YEAR-OLD Indonesian man was sentenced to jail for three months with three strokes of the cane after he pleaded guilty in the Bandar Magistrate’s Court to overstaying in Brunei.
Rama Hariono admitted the facts of the case before Acting Senior Magistrate, Hajah Ervy Sufitriana Haji Abdul Rahman, that he was arrested whilst at work at a rubbish disposal area in Simpang Jalan Kulapis/Katimahar at about 8.30pm on February 11.
The defendant failed to produce travel documents to the immigration personnel in the inspection.
The defendant was detained for further investigations and was later found that he held a social visit pass which had expired on December 15, 2013.
The defendant also said that ever since he entered Brunei he had worked on a freelance basis.
DPP Farhanah Pehin Dato Haji Suhaili appeared for the Public Prosecutor in the case.
