A Doa Kesyukuran ceremony was held at Surau Ad-Difa’, Bolkiah Garrison yesterday to welcome the return of four Royal Brunei Armed Forces (RBAF) personnel who had been deployed as part of the Independent Decommissioning Body, Verification, Monitoring and Assistance Team (IDB VMAT 4/2022) in Mindanao, Philippines.

The contingent, led by Lieutenant Colonel Hairin bin Japar, returned on May 3.

Minister at the Prime Minister’s Office and Minister of Defence II Pehin Datu Lailaraja Major General (Rtd) Dato Paduka Seri Haji Awang Halbi bin Haji Mohd Yussof and RBAF Commander Major General Dato Paduka Seri Haji Muhammad Haszaimi bin Bol Hassan were in attendance.

The RBAF has participated in the IDB VMAT since 2019 to support the peace process in Mindanao.

The initiative is part of Brunei Darussalam’s commitment towards regional and international peace and security, in line with the country’s aspirations.
