Australia: Tasmania retains draconian law against homosexuals
There is concern that the Tasmanian Legislative Council in June 1996 failed for the third time to repeal state legislation which allows 21 years' imprisonment for consensual homosexual acts conducted by adult males in private. Homosexual males imprisoned under this legislation would be considered prisoners of conscience. Amnesty International is urging the Tasmanian State Government to take immediate steps to repeal this legislation.
