Stop Spread of Information Containing Elements of Violence

Taking note of the armed attacks that were carried out on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, the Prime Minister's Office stated in a media release today that Brunei Darussalam sympathises with the families of the victims in this heinous and inhumane act of terrorism.

In this regard, the public is advised NOT to share inappropriate material that contains elements of violence, as it potentially creates anxiety among the audience, in addition to creating undesirable responses and negative preconceptions on the cause of the incident. The Prime Minister's office added given the broader exposure to online content, every individual plays a role in practising safe and prudent use of technology. As consumers, the public are advised to respect the sensitivity and feelings of the affected families. The Prime Minister's Office stressed that inappropriate use of media may be punishable under the relevant Acts.
