‘IN some part of the world alcohol is seen as the Devil’s brew.

Given the prevalence of booze-fuelled crime, this might well be a valid point.

But some counter the claim – people like Mohammed Ali bin Hj Ibrahimn, a 39-year-old import-export man from Brunei.

Trying to do his bit for those who like a tipple, Ibrahim decided to smuggle 700 cans of beer into the country.

Only he was caught and fined £5,000.

His excuse was that he had been trying to raise money to pay a fine of £5,000 he incurred two months earlier – for the same offence.’
