- BRUNEI is a small country located in South East Asia and rich in oil and gas which makes it one of the highest per capita incomes in the world.
However, in this country organised in the form of a sultanate, the more backward version of Islam prevails in its laws. Sharia law governs its rules and there is a death penalty for stoning anyone who engages in homosexual relations, falls into adultery or insults the prophet Mohammed, amputation of hands and feet from thieves or public flogging as punishment for abortion, making it the first country in Southeast Asia to impose Sharia law at the national level in its criminal regulation. -
