The Magistrate’s Court sentenced a local man to serve one month in prison recently, for lying to the police about his missing mobile phone.
Muhammad Haziman Azmi bin Hamzah was charged and found guilty under Section 182 of the Penal Code, Chapter 22, of filing a false report at the Kuala Belait Police Station, on February 15.
The Royal Brunei Police Force (RBPF) said that the 20-year-old private company employee was afraid of getting into trouble with his mother over the missing phone, which he had pawned to buy illegal drugs.
The police also warned the public that filing a false report is a serious offence.
