Uganda: Anti-homosexuality bill is inherently discriminatory and threatens broader human rights
The Anti-Homosexuality Bill (the bill) published on 25 September 2009 would, if enacted into law, prima facie violate international human rights law and lead to further human rights violations. This memorandum presents Amnesty International’s analysis of the bill and highlights specific serious concerns the bill raises. The bill which has already been tabled before the Ugandan Parliament is currently being considered and pending for consideration by two committees of the Parliament before being submitted for parliamentary debate.
