The Honourable Chief Justice Dato Seri Paduka Steven Chong has appointed Court Room 5F in the Singapore Supreme Court building as a Court of the Brunei High Court for the duration of the trial of HCCS No. 47 of 2018 - Ice Petroleum Engineering Sdn Bhd (formerly known as PT Technic Engineering Sdn Bhd) v Sahid Sdn Bhd.

The trial of HCCS No. 47 of 2018 will be conducted virtually and is scheduled from 12 to 15 and 19 to 22 October 2020. Due to the COVID-19 travel restrictions, Justice Kannan Ramesh will hear the case in Singapore, with counsel in Brunei and witnesses in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia appearing via video link. The case concerns a contractual dispute between a Bruneian company and a Malaysian company and relates to a joint venture involving a multimillion dollar project.

This cross border hearing is made possible because of the close judicial co-operation between the Brunei Supreme Court and its Singaporean counterpart and underscores the special relationship between the two nations. With the use of technology, the Brunei Supreme Court is continuing its mission to deliver justice efficiently and expeditiously in the 'new normal' environment of the COVID-19 pandemic.
