BRUNEI DARUSSALAM: UPR submission on inhuman sentencing of children

This report was submitted ahead of the 33rd session of the Universal Periodic Review as part of our campaign against inhuman sentencing of children - defined to include sentences of death, life imprisonment and corporal punishment. 

In Brunei Darussalam, children may currently be lawfully sentenced to life imprisonment and corporal punishment. In October 2013, Brunei enacted the Syariah Penal Code Order which, if fully implemented, would introduce the death penalty for offences committed by children and allow children to be sentence to whipping and amputation.
