Well, the laws in Brunei have been extreme for a long time.


This is probably not a particularly relevant change, it just makes great headlines

The underlying issues need to be addressed, not the headlines. Brunei has a dreadful record on human rights. You have longstanding laws against LGBT people. This is nothing new

When I was there, most Chinese people living in Brunei could not get a passport. They weren't considered bumiputera. I believe that the 'red IC' is still happening today. So 15% of Brunei's citizens are stateless and can't leave.

If you feel strongly about human rights in Brunei, there is nothing to stop you protesting in the UK. Let me know when and I will join you. I will also join you if you protest about the human rights record of Saudi Arabia, China and the US

Thanks for the offer but protesting things which donít directly concern me isnít for me. I just think this is a scary and regressive thing to be happening in 2019. Even if it never happens the fact is that it might. There are at least four countries where itís happened for other imagined ďcrimesĒ.

Mentioning the US in the same sentence is way off Maple.

This thread is about whether it is appropriate for the state of Brunei to put to death people that break the law of the land. And if so doing it in an unnecessarily public, painful and frightening way.

Have you ever seen a stoning Maple?

The comparisons to western executions in the US aren't on the same continent let alone page.

Well, certainly not in Brunei. The last execution was in 1957. That of course was the British.

The question is how many of those events will take place in a year?
Should the first year be discounted; is there a quantity of people awaiting trial?

Agree Law is barbaric, but will it do a job with offences coming to the attention of the authorities?
