Eight special passes were issued to the foreign nationals while their identity cards and passports were held for further investigations.

Royal Customs and Excise officers, on the other hand, ended their raid with one case involving a Muslim foreign national who possessed contraband items.
Two cases of the improper use of working permits were uncovered.
