Sultan of Brunei Implements Full, Medieval Shariah Law, Ranging from Fines for Failure to Attend Daily Prayer to Amputations to Public Stonings

Future primitive.

Under the first phase, fines and jail terms were introduced Thursday for offenses that include failure to attend Friday prayers, indecent behavior and pregnancies outside of marriage, the Star Online regional news site reported.


A second phase of the law, which will come into force later this year, provides for severing of limbs and flogging for property crimes. A third phase set for late 2015 will allow the justice system to sentence offenders to death by stoning for crimes including adultery and gay sex.


The decision by the all-powerful sultan to introduce sharia law spurred rare domestic criticism of the ruler on social media, according to news agencies in the Brunei capital, Bandar Seri Begawan. The 67-year-old sultan ordered a stop to the criticism, and it has largely ceased, Star Online reported.

Compare with the last post about the US Government's keen desire to "regulate" its critics.
