|The Law of Stoning for LGBT Applied in Brunei Darussalam|
One of them is stoning law for LGBT actors.
The law of stoning is a punishment carried out by throwing stones at the perpetrators to death.
Brunei Darussalam had been pressured by various parties to fail to establish this stoning law.
On Wednesday (3/4/2019) yesterday Brunei Darussalam officially enacted this stoning law for those who violated sharia law, including LGBT.
Some world leaders including artists and politicians react to this provision.
Celebrities like Elton John and Ellen DeGeneres voiced that the community was boycotting the hotel belonging to the Sultan of Brunei, Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah.
Elton John wrote a story on his twitter, "We have to send a message, as much as we can, that punishment (stoning) is not acceptable.
That is why David and I have long refused to stay in hotels (belonging to the Sultan of Brunei) and will remain like that.
We hope you will join this action of solidarity. "
