NO CHARGES will be pressed against two foreign workers accused on social media of attempting to break into a house in broad daylight.

Commenting on the video of an alleged house break-in attempt, the Royal Brunei Police Force (RBPF) said the men were instructed to change the locks of the government-rented property in Rimba by the new landlord.

When the workers were in the midst of changing the locks last Thursday, they noticed the house appeared to be occupied by tenants and informed the landlord before being instructed to leave.

The incident was recorded on video by a neighbour and was widely circulated on social media over the weekend. In a message that accompanied the video, the men were accused of breaking into the house to steal.

However, a police investigation into the incident revealed the workers were innocent as they were changing the locks as ordered by the landlord.
