He’s worth an estimated $25 billion (AUS), lives in a 1700-bed palace, indulges himself in western luxuries and has a reputation for enjoying beautiful women. In a story on 60 Minutes, viewers saw how the Sultan of Brunei lives a very extravagant but somewhat moderate Muslim life.
But last year the Sultan introduced Sharia Law – where thieves would have their hands cut off and adulterers and homosexuals would be stoned to death.
While parts of the ancient Islamic law have been introduced in stages, Brunei is now on the verge of adopting public stoning. 60 Minutes’ Alison Langdontravelled through the small Asian nation undercover to see how the strict regime was affecting citizens and spoke to a woman who was once part of the Sultan’s harem revealing the hypocrisy of the current state of affairs. What they found, she explained, was a beautiful but repressed country where its citizens never criticise the royal family – mainly because it’s a crime – and seem to be unaware of the Sultan and his playboy brother, Prince Jefri’s debauchery. Vanity Fair dubbed them the “constant companions in hedonism” in 2011 for their lavish lifestyles and penchant for collecting women like children collect toys.
And Prince Jefri is on the outer, accused of siphoning $19.2 billion (AUS) from the country’s coffers.
According to Jillian Lauren, the American woman who spoke to 60 Minutes about her year in Prince Jefri and the Sultan’s harem, the pair indulged a lot – and they didn’t care how old the girls were. Ms Langdon said the crew spent five days in Brunei secretly recording, trying to find out if people felt anger towards the new changes. Brunei has a population just over 415,000 and was ranked the fifth richest nation in the world by Forbes thanks to its large oil and gas reserves. Its citizens enjoy free health and education, most are employed in the public sector and none of them criticise the royal family – because it’s not allowed. When 60 Minutes went in, they found it hard to find anyone who was willing to say a bad word about anything from the introduction of Sharia Law or the royal family.


It seems only the Hollywood elite were repulsed by the introduction of the ancient Islamic law. Last year stars such as Ellen DeGeneres, Jay Leno, Sharon Osborne, Elton John and entrepreneur Richard Branson boycotted the infamous Beverley Hills Hotel which is owned by the Sultan as part of his Dorchester Hotel luxury chain.

Brunei's Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah established Sharia Law, which imposes cruel punishments on homosexuals, in his nation last year. BEVERLY HILLS—Hassanal Bolkiah, the 29th and current Sultan of Brunei, is facing backlash at the Beverly Hills Hotel, which he owns, because of his recent approval of anti-gay policies in his nation, which is officially titled, Nation of Brunei, Abode of Peace. On February 5, Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter, John Legend, was scheduled to perform at a Grammy pre-party sponsored by Ciroc Vodka and L.A. In addition to Legend’s boycott, throngs of supporters gathered outside the hotel the night of February 5, in protest of the Sultan’s intolerant policies, which also include the legal raping of one’s wife if she is over 13.
The boycott of the hotel is supported by celebrities and organizations such as Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres, Kim Kardashian, Russel Crowe, Sharon Osbourne, Richard Branson, Jeffrey Katzenberg of Dreamworks and gay-rights organizations like GLAAD and the Human Rights Campaign, and former “Tonight Show” host Jay Leno, who compared the Sultan to Donald Sterling. Representatives from Ciroc Vodka were unavailable to provide a comment regarding their controversial sponsorship of the Grammy pre-party in the embattled hotel.

Sharia Law, a strict body of Islamic law, dictates that there be strict penalties for homosexual acts including beatings, lashes, stoning, lifetime imprisonment, severing of limbs, and the death penalty. She was very well looked after but that’s because she caught the eye of the Sultan’s younger brother Prince Jefri. She was very well looked after but that’s because she caught the eye of the Sultan’s younger brother Prince Jefri.“She was his play thing. They had sex hundreds of times and then Prince Jefri gave her as a gift to the Sultan and she goes into great detail (about) the sexual activity she got up to with the sultan.”Ms Langdon said the crew spent five days in Brunei secretly recording, trying to find out if people felt anger towards the new changes.
