    The Magistrate’s Court yesterday ordered a 22-year-old permanent resident to settle a BND16,650 fine for possession of smuggled cigarettes.

    Acting Senior Magistrate Dewi Norlelawati binti Haji Abdul Hamid ordered Shafwan Hafizul bin Abdullah Hindri to serve 16 months’ jail in default of payment after he pleaded guilty to possessing 18 cartons and 29 packets of cigarettes.

    The court heard that Customs preventive officers made the discovery after inspecting the defendant’s home in Kampong Sengkarai in the Tutong District, at 8.13pm on June 2. The court ordered the cigarettes destroyed.
