Ban on Uganda’s Anti-Gay Law Welcomed

The UNAIDS welcomes the decision of Uganda's Constitutional Court to strike down a law banning the promotion of homosexuality punishable by life imprisonment

The joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) has welcomed the decision of Uganda's Constitutional Court to strike down a law banning the promotion of homosexuality punishable by life imprisonment.
 
The anti-gay legislation was deemed null and void by the court on the technicality that it was not passed by a required parliamentary quorum.
 
On the substance of Uganda's Anti-Homosexuality Act of 2014, there was no ruling from this court that struck down the law because not enough lawmakers had been present to vote on the bill, that aside, the decision was welcomed by UNAIDS executive director, Michel Sedibe, who called it a great day for social justice and where the rule of law had prevailed.
