Ugandan court rules anti-homosexuality law unconstitutional

1691

A Ugandan court on Friday struck down an anti-homosexuality law that punishes gay sex with long jail sentences after Ugandans opposed to the law filed a constitutional petition alleging that the law violates fundamental rights.



“I can confirm the anti-homosexuality law has been struck down. The judge said there were irregularities in the process of its enactment and also there was no quorum in parliament,” said Nicholas Opio, a lawyer for the petitioners.
