JAY LENO JOINS PICKET OF HOTEL OWNED BY SULTAN OF BRUNEI

*

The major owner of the hotel chain known as The Dorchester
Collection is the Sultan of Brunei . The Sultan is one of the world’s
richest men and owns the Beverly Hilton Hotel. He was picketed there
recently by many including Jay Leno because of his support for Sharia
law which in Brunei includes government actions such as:

Gay men caught having sex are stoned to death. Some thieves
have their hands amputated. Women who become pregnant while unmarried
can be jailed or fined.

The 62 year old Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah has at least 20 billion dollars in assets.

“The Dorchester Collection, an international group of luxury
hotels, is owned by Brunei Investment Agency, a branch of Brunei’s
Ministry of Finance, and includes properties in London, Paris, Rome,
Milan and Geneva, as well as the Beverly Hills Hotel and the Hotel
Bel-Air in Los Angeles, where protesters have denounced the new law.
wrote
the New York Times which reported the boycott will extend to employees
of Richard Branson’s The Virgin Group as well as customers of
cruise.co.uk
