Brunei Law To Kill LGBT People

By Charlotte Robinson, April 04, 2019
The Sultan of Brunei, Hassanal Bolkiah has implemented a law in his Southeast Asian country to punish anyone found guilty of committing adultery or having gay sex will be stoned or whipped to death. Ty Cobb HRC Global Director stated, “We are facing a dangerous crisis as Brunei is implementing laws that impose state-sponsored torture & murder of LGBTQ people. It’s absolutely crucial that the international community speak out now & demand that the Sultan of Brunei stop these barbaric changes that threaten the lives of Brunei citizens. The Trump-Pence Administration must also immediately make clear that these outrageous human rights abuses will not be tolerated.” Singer & LGBTQ Icon Elton John & Actor George Clooney have called for a boycott of nine hotels linked to Brunei including the Beverly Hills Hotel, the Bel-Air in Los Angeles, the Dorchester in London & Le Meurice in Paris. Clooney stated, "Let that sink in. In the onslaught of news where we see the world backsliding into authoritarianism this stands alone." With three of Brunei’s hotels in the UK the Peter Tatchell Foundation will be demonstrating against the Sultan of Brunei this Saturday April 6th 2P at the Dorchester Hotel, Park Lane W1 in London to protest Brunei's medieval Sharia legislation. Peter Tatchell stated, “The Sultan of Brunei, owner of the Dorchester Hotel, has enacted death by stoning for people found guilty of adultery, blasphemy, same-gender relations & straying from traditional interpretations of Islam. We must show him that the international community rejects this barbarism.”
