Beverly Hills Bar Association Drops Beverly Hills Hotel Events in Protest of Sultan of Brunei

Adding to the list of organizations backing out of planned events at the Beverly Hills Hotel, the city’s namesake bar association on Tuesday announced that it was pulling all upcoming programs and events that were scheduled to be held at the property.

The organization said that it would not hold its California Supreme Court Luncheon on June 3 at the hotel. Instead, it will be held at the Montage Beverly Hills.

“The BHBA is taking this action in condemnation of the hotel’s owner, Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, for his introduction and implementation of harsh criminal laws, including the death penalty and stoning, against homosexuals, adulterers and others in the country of Brunei,” the organization said in a statement.

The group added, “The BHBA regrets any adverse impact this decision may have on the management and staff of the Hotel, with whom the BHBA has enjoyed a good and positive professional relationship for many years.”
