The case of a schoolteacher who allegedly molested male students under the age of 12 was adjourned to January 23 after being heard in the Magistrate’s Court again on Thursday.

The 41-year-old defendant, whose name is withheld, is accused of kissing and fondling the students on different occasions at a primary school in the Belait District.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Nurul Fitri binti Kiprawi asked for more time to finalise the case before proceeding against the defendant and was granted an adjournment until then.
