0

WASHINGTON D.C.: Brunei would violate international standards on human rights if the oil-rich sultanate presses ahead with stoning and other punishments under sharia law, an incoming US official said on Thursday (Friday in Manila). Nina Hachigian, nominated to be the US ambassador for the 10-nation Association of Southeast Asian Nations bloc, told her Senate confirmation hearing that it was “important that a nation’s laws conform with its international obligations on human rights.”
