  1. Two corrections at the last two sentences:

    ‘Deputy Africa director Michelle Kagari said: “Their human rights, the rights to freedom from discrimination, of conscience, expression and privacy have been flagrantly violated.”‘

    Should read:

    ‘Amnesty’s deputy African Director Michelle Kagari said:…..”‘


    “Gay rights campaigner Peter Tatchell told yesterday that the conviction breaches Malawi’s conviction.”

    should read:

    “…that the conviction breaches Malawi’s Constitution.”

  2. non-custodial sentence, legal definition:

    A criminal sentence served elsewhere than in a prison (for example, on probation).


    If there is no victim, and that this conviction breaches Malawi’s Constitution….what’s wrong with this picture???

    Step 1: These two young men should be released immediately and protected against homophobic violence of any kind.

    Stop sending money to this country. The don’t need it if they can make problems out of the way some people want to live their lives.
