TWO local men were produced in the Magistrate’s Court yesterday to face charges under Section 395 of the Penal Code, Chapter 22 for allegedly committing gang robbery on Wednesday.

Shambri bin Haji Tunjul, 41, and Mazlan bin Tali, 40, allegedly stole a van after threatening the owner in the area of Kampong Kupang in the early hours of the morning.

The two were arrested later the same day, following police investigations on CCTV footage which went viral on social media purportedly showing the two committing the crime.

Magistrate Kamaliah Fadhilah binti Haji Ibrahim ordered the defendants remanded for two weeks for further investigations and adjourned the case to March 21.

DPP Pengiran Nor’ Azmeena binti Pengiran Mohiddin appeared for the prosecution.
