The Royal Brunei Police Force (RBPF) managed to trace the four remaining locals who attended a religious gathering at the Jamek Sri Petaling Mosque in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and handed them over to the Ministry of Health (MoH).

The MoH had sought the assistance of the RBPF after the four individuals did not come forward to get tested for COVID-19.

The RBPF urged the public that actions will be taken against individuals who failed to report themselves to the MoH when instructed to do so under Section 62(2) of the Infectious Diseases Act.

If found guilty, they will face a fine of up to BND10,000 or imprisoned for a period of not more than six months or both for the first offence.

For the second offence, they will be fined up to BND20,000 or imprisoned for a period of not more than one year or both.
