Human Rights Watch and International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commision call for an end to the police harassment of Ugandan sexual rights activists
Barbara Felix // 24 September 2008
In violation of Ugandan law, two human rights activists working with LGBT groups and communities in Uganda were arrested on the 10th September and held for 8 days without charges being brought. Human Rights Watch and the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights commission have
called on Ugandan authorities to clear their police files and respect the basic freedoms of all Ugandans regardless of their sexual orientation and gender identity
Despite not being charged with anything, the case remains open.
