More > law imposing death by stoning for extramarital sex and anal sex; and a wide range of restrictions that discriminate against women and gender minorities, and violates freedom of expression. Although Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah has described a "de facto moratorium on capital punishment" in Brunei – stating that the death penalty would not be enforced in the implementation of the SPCO – the sultan could reverse his decision on a whim; and the punishments of amputation and whipping could still be used.
