Brunei joins attorney general’s chambers event

Attorney General’s Chambers of Singapore hosted the 10th event of the Attorney General’s Chambers of Brunei Darussalam, Malaysia and Singapore (Tri-AGC) at Conrad Hotel in Singapore recently.

Themed ‘A Common Heritage: Building Tomorrow Today Together’, the event was officiated by Singapore Minister for Culture, Community and Youth and Second Minister for Law Edwin Tong. Attorney General of Singapore Lucien Wong, Attorney General of Brunei Darussalam Datin Paduka Hajah Nor Hashimah binti Haji Mohammed Taib and Attorney General of Malaysia Datuk Ahmad Terrirudin bin Mohd Salleh were present at the opening ceremony.

The Singaporean minister, in his keynote speech, said the three countries shared a common legal heritage, emphasising its role in ensuring justice to suit domestic needs. He further highlighted the rule of law ensures access to justice for all parties and improves the quality of life in a society.

Over 119 officers from the three chambers participated, where topics such as ‘Sharing of work, Organisational Structure and Significant Recent Development(s)’, ‘Tackling Online Falsehoods’ and ‘Combatting Internet Scams’ were discussed.

The delegates also took part in team-building activities, with the aim of strengthening the close relationships between officers of the three Chambers.

The Tri-AGC event, which first began in 2006, serves as a forum for the exchange of knowledge and experiences in areas of mutual legal concern among the attorney general’s chambers of the three countries. – Fadley Faisal
