BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN (Reuters) – Brunei’s Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah on Sunday stretched a moratorium regarding the death penalty to legislation that is incoming gay sex, trying to temper a worldwide backlash led by superstars such as for example George Clooney and Elton John.

The tiny Southeast Asian nation sparked an outcry when it rolled away its interpretation of Islamic rules, or sharia, on April 3, punishing sodomy, adultery and rape with death, including by stoning.

Brunei has regularly defended its straight to implement the statutory guidelines, components of that have been very first used in 2014 and that have been rolled call at stages since that time.

Nevertheless, in a response that is rare critique targeted at the oil-rich state, the sultan stated the death penalty wouldn’t be imposed when you look at the utilization of the Syariah Penal Code Order, or SPCO.

Some crimes already command the death penalty in Brunei, including premeditated drug and murder trafficking, but no executions are completed since 1957.
