ALDE calls on Ugandan authorities not to adopt anti-homosexuality bill

ALDE MEPs wrote a letter to the Ugandan authorities to urge them not to adopt a bill that would further criminalise or even impose a death penalty on LGBT persons. The Ugandan Parliament is discussing the draft law this week and NGOs denounced the possibility of the law being approved in a hurry. This might happen just a week before the International Day against Homophobia (IDAHO), that is celebrated every year on the 17th of May and a short time since David Kato Kisule, a Ugandan human rights and LGBT rights activist, was brutally killed due to his opposition to the law. ALDE also is calling on the President of the Commission and VP/HR Catherine Ashton to express the EU's concern on the issue.
