Geopolitically, the move is likely yet another step for the relatively conservative Brunei to define itself against its more liberal (by comparison) neighbors, Indonesia and Malaysia. At the very least, Brunei’s government has indicated that some laws will, indeed, be enforced.The Sultan of Brunei will not have a quasi-Islamist rebellion within the Abode of Peace. The wearing of indecent clothing, for example, will get you six months in jail, as will any act that, according to the new penal code, “tarnishes the image of Islam, corrupts moral standards, causes negative influence or upsets eyewitnesses.”However, a “senior legal officer of the Islamic Legal Unit at the Ministry of Religious Affairs” told the Brunei Times that authorities will enforce the law gradually.Caught in a feud between the prince and the sultan, they ended up in a court battle over million.Following the couple’s legal victory, Mark Seal gets an exclusive on the story the jury didn’t hear.This wasn’t necessarily a bad strategy, because soon it seemed that only a simpleton would not have noticed the blatant chicanery he was accusing these attorneys of committing.“Numerous acts of theft and deception, self-dealing, embezzlement and fraud, all designed to benefit themselves and their family members,” read the prince’s original complaint, filed in federal court in December 2006.He charged the couple with arranging a fraudulent sale of his mansion on Long Island’s exclusive North Shore at a cut-rate price, with depositing a million check paid to one of his companies into the account of a “cloned” company under their control in the Cayman Islands, and with putting improper personal expenses—totaling more than 0,000—on company credit cards.The arc of history may bend toward justice, but there are some pretty serious kinks along the way.
Other than the UNHCR, few liberals seem to have even noticed the change.The lawyers for the defendants attempted in turn to show the jury that Jefri was not a financial simpleton at all but “an unabashed and unreformed serial liar,” charged with stealing .8 billion from Brunei when he served as its finance minister, from the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s.The defendants claimed that he had used his stolen billions to finance a 10-year orgy of extravagance and deceit, which culminated only when his brother the Sultan of Brunei set out to recover the fortune Jefri had supposedly hidden.Theft, for example, is punishable by amputating the right hand. Presumably, they are too busy worrying about whether bakers in Colorado have to bake penis cakes.If one were a cynic, one might wonder whether the Right’s silence on this unprecedented imposition of Islamic law against Christians has something to do with Brunei’s wealth and petroleum resources; the country is smaller than Delaware, but is the ninth-largest producer of liquefied natural gas in the world.
Rupert Colville, spokesperson for the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), noted that “under international law, stoning people to death constitutes torture or other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment and is thus clearly prohibited.”But it’s not international law that the Sultan of Brunei is interested in—it’s Islamic law. Brunei has had the death penalty for decades, yet its last execution took place in 1957, under British rule.
