Dear friend,

Brunei, the tiny oil-rich sultanate on the Gulf Island of Borneo. I save your time by not 
amplifying my extended royal family history, which has already been disseminated by the 
international media during the controversial dispute that erupted between my father and his step 
brother, the sultan of Brunei Sheik Muda Hassanal Bolkiah.

As you may know from the international media, the sultan had accused my father of financial 
mismanagement and impropriety of US$14.8 Billion dollars; this was as a result of the Asian 
Financial crisis that made my father’s company (Amedeo Development Corporation) to be declared 
bankrupt during his tenure in the office.

However my father was kept under house arrest, his bank accounts and private Properties including a 
crude oil export refinery were later confiscated by the sultanate. Furthermore, during this 
unfortunate period, I was advised to evacuate my immediate family outside the country to avoid 
further prosecution from the sultan and his security operatives, but unfortunately for me i was 
arrested and placed under house arrest by the Sultan, presently i have not access to a phone but I 
have a Palm hand-held computer from which I am sending you this mail. Some of the guards here are
