A team of prosecutors from the Criminal Justice Division of the
Attorney General’s Chambers conducted talks to Stella’s School as part of their
efforts to educate the youth of Brunei Darussalam of cybercrime and the
importance of Internet safety.
The talk, which was entitled ‘Cybercrime and the Risks and Dangers
of Social Media’, was delivered over two sessions to the Year 6 students of
Stella’s School. A total of over 100 students attended the two talks delivered
by Deputy Public Prosecutors Hjh Rozaimah binti Hj Abdul Rahman, Siti
Nurjauinah binti Hj Kula, Sharon Yeo and Dk Hazirah Pg Mohd Yusof.
The talk was tailored to cover areas of cybercrime that may involve
children and teenagers including cyber bullying, online blackmailing and the
spreading of unverified messages. Real examples of cases that have been brought
to the Courts of Brunei Darussalam were also given during the talk to highlight
that such incidents can occur in our nation. The speakers also educated their
young audience of the consequences of befriending strangers online whose true
intentions may be unbeknownst to them until it is too late. It was highlighted
to the students how easily someone can pose as another person online and that
the information or personal media they share can be taken advantage of by
criminals lurking on cyber space. The students were advised to avoid disclosing
personal information online and to immediately inform a guardian or teacher of
any concerns they may have.
Following the talks, the students were given the opportunity to ask
the speakers questions. The speakers left the students with the important
message to ‘Think Before You Post’.
The Criminal Justice Division of the Attorney General’s Chambers
invites schools and educational institutions to contact the chambers if they
are interested in holding such talks in the future. Requests for such talks
should be addressed to the Criminal Justice Division, Attorney General’s
Chambers, the Law and Courts Building, Jalan Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Hajah
Saleha, Bandar Seri Begawan BA 1910 Brunei Darussalam.
