United Nations chief urges Uganda to repeal anti-gay law

Published: 02.26.14, 00:23 / Israel News

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called on Uganda on Tuesday to repeal a law imposing harsh penalties for homosexuality, warning it could fuel prejudice and encourage harassment and violence against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.

 

Ban also conveyed his concerns to Uganda's UN envoy Monday, just hours after Uganda's President Yoweri Museveni signed the law in the face of protests from rights groups and criticism from Western donors. (Reuters)
