On March 28, 2019, Margot Wallström, Sweden’s Minister for Foreign Affairs wrote on her Twitter account concerning the announcement of Brunei’s strict Islamic law punishing adultery and homosexual sex with death by stoning.
The Minister wrote that the new law introduced recently by Brunei that punished adultery and homosexual sex with stoning to death is “cruel and unacceptable”.
She also commented that the death penalty is “inhuman and irrevocable” act that should not be applied into the law of any country.
“Sweden and the EU condemns the death penalty in all its forms,” she added.
Swedish Minister is not the only one who spoke out against this law but governments, politicians and celebrities from all around the world also condemned this law and boycotted hotels with links to Brunei in order to send out the international unpleasantness to Brunei.
