KUCHING: The Malaysian Armed Forces (ATM) have thwarted four attempts by 15 Indonesians to enter Sarawak illegally at different locations this month.

A spokesman for the 1st Infantry Division said the Indonesians, who claimed to be looking for jobs here, were deported.

The first attempt took place around 3.50pm on Oct 1 when a patrol caught three men, aged between 19 and 45, entering an area in the Tetangga Akrab plantation, Balai Ringin.

On Saturday (Oct 2), three men and a woman, aged between 22 and 47, were caught along an illegal route in Lubok Antu around 7.55pm.

The next day (Oct 3), a patrol managed to detain two men, both aged 24, at Kampung Padang Pan, Serikin around 2.30pm.

The fourth attempt saw five men and a woman, aged between 20 and 46, detained around 300m from the Malaysia-Indonesia border in Biawak, on Monday (Oct 4).

All of the 15 Indonesians did not have any valid travel documents.
