A 32-year-old Malaysian man was produced before the Magistrate’s Court yesterday on suspicion of drug-related activities.

No charges had been drafted against Sim Chern Thin as the prosecutor applied for the remand of the defendant made under Section 22A of the Misuse of Drugs Act. Meanwhile, Magistrate Pengiran Hazirah binti Pengiran Haji Mohd Yusof ordered the defendant to be remanded and undergo investigations by the Kuala Belait Police Station.

DPP Muhd Qamarul Affyian bin Abdul Rahman said the defendant was arrested in possession of clear packets believed to contain controlled substances on April 14 at 3.10pm by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB).
