Unethical lawyers making quick buck

The Brunei Land Code Amendment Order 2016 clearly states that non-citizens of the country are not allowed to own land in Brunei Darussalam.

However, there are lawyers that are not acting in the best interest of the country by luring unsuspecting clients into legal documents such as Trust Deed.These lawyers are taking advantage of the new land code to swindle non-citizens into creating documents that are non-binding and against the Order at exorbitant amount of money.

I urge the authorities to consider educating the public on their rights to put a halt to the unscrupulous conduct.
