Brunei is shielding its new enemy of LGBTQ law, which makes homosexuality — just as homosexuality, infidelity and assault — deserving of death by stoning. In a letter sent to the Unified Countries Monday it said there has been a "misguided judgment" in universal comprehension of the law.

In the letter, Dato Erywan Pehin Yusof, Priest of Remote Issues II for Brunei, asked the worldwide network to consider human rights in "the national setting" of the nation's social and religious qualities and regard the nation's sway.

The letter says the law, which additionally applies to kids and outsiders, was instated the counteract LGBTQ conduct as opposed to rebuff for it. "We reaffirm that the Syariah criminal law framework concentrates more on avoidance than discipline," he composed. "Its point is to instruct, deflect, restore and support as opposed to rebuff."

Rebuffing homosexuality isn't new in Brunei — it was beforehand deserving of as long as 10 years of prison time. However at this point, individuals discovered blameworthy of gay sex can be battered to the point of death or whipped, in certain conditions. Demise by stoning is likewise another discipline for miscreants, while hoodlums may have their correct hands or left feet cut away.

As per the letter, the laws explicitly apply to Muslim qualities, so they won't be maintained for individuals of different beliefs except if a non-Muslim individual includes a Muslim individual in the offense.

The letter likewise says discipline requires a "very high evidentiary limit," which means two to four men of "high good standing" must observer the demonstration.
