Prosecutors have been given three weeks to assess evidence in a case linked to a car hijacking with a young boy in tow.

Magistrate Kamaliah Fadhilah binti Haji Ibrahim adjourned the case to December 2, seeing Deputy Public Prosecutor Atiyyah binti Abas’ application for time. Firdaus bin Mohammad Salleh, 24, allegedly endangered the lives of others by hijacking a car with a young boy inside and ramming the stolen vehicle into the main gate of the Royal Brunei Air Force (RBAirF) Base in Rimba at 4.55pm, on November 2.

The charge carries a penalty of three years’ imprisonment, together with a fine.
