Society Human Rights Watch lauds Malawi on homophobic law moratorium

Society Human Rights Watch lauds Malawi on homophobic law moratorium

Malawi's Justice Minister and Attorney General Ralph Kasambara last week told a public debate on minority rights that the police have been ordered not to arrest anyone suspected of engaging in homosexuality.
Malawi's buggery, gross indecency and carnal knowledge against the order of nature laws are some of the toughest homophobic laws in the world. Anyone convicted under these laws can get up to 14 years in jail with hard labour.
