Sultan of Brunei returns Oxford degree after backlash to anti-gay laws

Brunei’s Sultan has returned an honorary degree awarded by Britain’s Oxford University after a global backlash for proposing the death penalty for gay sex and adultery. Nearly 120,000 people had signed a petition calling on the University to rescind the honorary law degree awarded in 1993. Oxford said the sultan decided to hand back the honorary degree, while it was reviewing its decision.
