Financial services firm JPMorgan Chase has banned staff from staying in the Brunei-owned hotels after this country implemented barbaric Sharia law, which is in part encouraging death penalty for gay sex. A senior manager at JPMorgan told the newspaper the company had issued a notice on its internal booking system but refused to make a public statement about this issue. The company’s decision follows a similar move by Deutsche Bank, which removed the Dorchester Collection hotel group from its list of suppliers. The Dorchester Hotel in London and the Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles are among the high-profile hotels that officially belong to the Sultan of Brunei. Last month, Brunei issued a letter to the European Union where they defended the introduction of its new Sharia laws, saying that its aim is rather to prevent men from having gay sex than to actually execute them for it.
