The Foreign Secretary and I met Brunei's Foreign Minister Dato Erywan and Finance Minister Dato Amin Liew in London on 11 April. Ahead of this meeting the Foreign Secretary spoke to Dato Erywan on 4 April. The Foreign Secretary expressed the UK's deep concern following the implementation of the final phases of the Sharia Penal Code and was clear that the UK strongly opposes corporal and capital punishment. He also made clear that no one should face persecution or discrimination because of who they are and whom they love.
I raised UK concerns with the Sultan about hudud punishments during my visit to Brunei Darussalam in August 2018.
