TO EDUCATE the younger generation on the harms posed by Internet and social media networks, the Attorney General’s Chambers delivered a talk to the students of Micronet International College as part of the college’s Orientation Programme for the September 2014 intake. The talk was delivered at the Indera Samudra Grand Hall, the Empire Hotel and Country Club.
The talk, delivered by the Criminal Justice Division of the Attorney General’s Chambers, addressed various key issues.
One of the issues covered was exploitation of young and vulnerable victims on the Internet by sexual predators and other being the dissemination of obscene media online. The speakers, namely DPP Christopher Ng, DPP Dk Didi-Nuraza binti Pg Hj Abd Latiff and DPP Danial bin DSP Hj Kifrawi, also addressed recent disturbing trends such as online extortion schemes and the spreading of messages and postings on Facebook groups which have not been verified as truthful.
Laws that regulate against irresponsible behaviour on the Internet and social media were also discussed.
The Criminal Justice Division of the Attorney General’s Chambers has invited 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.
