The Sultan of Brunei is due to introduce a new Sharia penal code. Under the new code 'offences' including adultery and sodomy can be punished by the ‘culprit’ being stoned to death. 

Stonewall’s support:

  • We raised our concerns with UK Foreign and Commonwealth officials and made sure they raised the issue at the UN

  • We’ve been co-ordinating carefully with human rights organisations in the region and at an international level to make sure anything we do supports LGBT people and doesn’t undermine their work

What you can do:

  • Read this appeal from regional human rights organisations asking the Sultan of Brunei to stop the implementation of Sharia law

  • Be committed for the long haul and follow the debate on Facebook and Twitter
