LUNDU: The General Operations Force (GOF) on Sunday caught two undocumented immigrants for entering Sarawak illegally.

A GOF spokesperson said a patrol team from Kampung Raso post caught two Indonesian men and inspected them around 8.30pm.

“Inspections found that they failed to produce any valid travel documents to the team.

“Their modus operandi is that both men entered Sarawak via a rat trail for the purpose of working at the nearest oil palm plantation,” the spokesperson said.

The duo had committed offences under Section 6(1) of the Immigration Act 1959 (Act 155) and the Infectious Disease Prevention and Control Act 1988 (Act 342).

Both men were ordered by the GOF patrol team to return to their country of origin using the same route.
