In a u-turn following an international outcry against execution by stoning, Brunei has said that the law will not be enacted.  Brunei does retain the death penalty for some crimes, but there has been on executions since the 1990's.

Maybe changing the law might be better, rather than saying they will not impose the punishment.

Maybe realising it’s just barbaric and if I’m honest we all know it’s still going to go on in little pockets. So again it’s just bull for the sake of bull but it least it will make the less intelligent feel like they’ve accomplished something 😁

They won't enforce it, something tells me, if it suits thrm they will, all of these countries UAE, Brunei etc have ancient barbaric laws, its about time they stepped into 21st century and changed them.

The Muslim states are all subject to Islamic law and custom and I don't think that will ever change.  Brunei may be one of the few countries that has a moratorium on the death penalty since no executions have been carried out since the 1990's.
