Following an incident where a crane toppled inside the Islamic cemetery area nearby the Jame' 'Asr Hassanil Bolkiah in Kampung Kiarong last Sunday, the Ministry of Religious Affairs in a statement explained that the said crane belonged to a company that was appointed by the ministry's Islamic Cemetery Land Unit of the Building and Maintenance Section to cut and clear off trees that can endanger the public and nearby vehicles.

Early investigation conducted by the appointed contractor revealed that the crane had experienced technical issues while carrying out tree cutting works. However, no casualties were reported and the ministry will take necessary actions to address the issue. For any damage at the cemetary area, the public can make a report to the Islamic Cemetary Land Hut in Kampung Kiarong during office hours.
