MORE than 500 students from St Andrew’s School attended a cybercrime talk yesterday prepared by a team of deputy public prosecutors (DPP) from the Criminal Justice Division of the Attorney General’s Chambers (AGC).
The talk, titled “Cybercrime and the Risks and Dangers of Social Media”, is part of the AGC’s “Program Mendekati Masyarakat”.
During the interactive session, 500 students from the school’s Year Seven to 10 classes were told to be wary of individuals trying to exploit them on the internet. These individuals may range from online sexual predators to organised criminals looking to recruit their latest victim as a drug mule.
The talk also touched on the negative implications of cyber-bullying as well as the increase in online extortion.
The talk was delivered by DPP Karen Tan, DPP Muhammad Abdul Raafe Hj Ibrahim, DPP Kamaliah Fadhilah Hj Ibrahim and DPP Mohammad Danial Dato Hj Kifrawi.
The Criminal Justice Division invites interested schools and educational institutions to contact AGC if they are interested in hosting 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.
