Due to social and cultural reasons, crime in Brunei is practically non-existent with petty crimes such as pickpocketing being scarce. However, Brunei faces issues with human trafficking for forced labour and forced prostitution means and is both a transit and destination for men and women from Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, China and Thailand, among others.
Despite the fact that prostitution is punishable by imprisonment for five years and a $20,000 fine, the Bruneian Government has yet to prosecute a single trafficking case. It also has not identified any trafficking victims or implement formal procedures to identify victims or trafficking, but it has made significant efforts to halt the practice.
