Is Crocodile a protected species in Brunei?

Is Crocodile a protected species in Brunei?
I have been asked this question many times. From my knowledge it is not a protected species in Brunei but it is in some other countries like Australia.
The population of this species seems to have grown at human populated areas such that it is endangering the public. Beaches like Serasa and Tutong is a case in point. There was a crocodile attack not too long ago at Tutong resulting in the death of a child.
So what should be do? If it is not a protected species, should we have it culled?
