Namibia: Submission to the UN Human rights committee 140th session, 4-28 March 2024

Amnesty International submits this document to the UN Human Rights Committee in advance of the review of Namibia’s third periodic report1, raising concerns of ongoing challenges faced by the LGBTI community in Namibia based on findings from a report published in January 2024 entitled ‘We are facing extinction.’ This document should not be seen as an exhaustive account of the organization’s concerns regarding Namibia’s implementation of the Covenant, but rather as an urgent call to address the critical human rights challenges faced by LGBTI persons in Namibia.
