A video clip which went viral on social media showing a fight among workers in orange coveralls in a workers’ canteen alleging it was here was debunked by the Ministry of Energy, Manpower and Industry (MEMI) yesterday.

The ministry referring to the video in a statement said it was in another country and the allegation that it had taken place at Pulau Muara Besar was false and malicious.

The public should not spread unverified information or messages through social media platforms as spreading false information either orally, written or any other means is an offence under Section 34 of the Public Order Act, CAP 148, which can result in imprisonment of up to three years or a fine of BND3,000, if found guilty.
