    Background: TWO-THOUSAND MEN CAPTURED IN LAST DECEMBER'S BRUNEI REVOLT ARE STILL BEING HELD IN THE BERAKAS DETENTION CAMP, THREE MILES (5 KMS) OUTSIDE BRUNEI TOWN.AT THE CAMP, A FORMER TEACHERS TRAINING COLLEGE, THE DETAINEES ARE GIVEN REHABILITATION TRAINING.

    BRUNEI'S POLICY IS TO RELEASE AS MANY AS POSSIBLE, BECAUSE-THE TINY TERRITORY CANNOT AFFORD TO HAVE SO MANY ABLE-BODIED MEN OUT OF CIRCULATION.ALREADY, 700 HAVE BEEN RELEASED.IT IS EXPECTED THAT ABOUT 600--WILL REMAIN UNDER DETENTION, WHILE THE REST WILL BE RELEASED SOON.

    MOST OF THE DETAINEES ARE BRUNEI MALAYS.DURING THEIR DETENTION, THEY ARE TAUGHT VARIOUS TRADES, INCLUDING FARMING AND HANDICRAFTS.THERE ARE RELIGIOUS CLASSES, TOO.AT RECREATION TIME, A FEW OF THEM ARE ALLOWED TO PRACTISE THE MALAY UNARMED COMBAT CALLED THE BERSILAT.

    THE CAMP IS SURROUNDED BY WOODEN WATCH-TOWERS, AND POLICE KEEP A 24-HOUR WATCH.DETAINEES WORKING OUTSIDE THE CAMP ARE ALWAYS ACCOMPANIED BY GUARDS.

    MEANWHILE, THOSE WHO HAVE COMPLETED THEIR REHABILITATION HAVE RETURNED TO THEIR HOMES TO RESUME A NORMAL LIFE.MANY HAVE BEEN GIVEN JOBS BY THE GOVERNMENT.
