The Southeast Asian sovereign state of Brunei is planning to implement a law that would make sodomy punishable by stoning. Death by stoning. Seriously.
Other offenses that could face the death penalty by capital punishment include rape, adultery, blasphemy, murder, “declaring oneself a prophet or non-Muslim,” “insulting any verses of the Quran and Hadith,” and “extramarital relations for Muslims.” Kind of runs the gamut in terms of extremity of the crime, doesn’t it?
The revised penal code is slated to go into effect April 22, according to Gay Asia News and other media outlets.
“Application of the death penalty for such a broad range of offenses contravenes international law,” Rupert Colville, spokesperson for the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, said in a statement. “We urge the Government to delay the entry into force of the revised penal code and to conduct a comprehensive review ensuring its compliance with international human rights standards,” he told a news conference in Geneva.
