US State Department suspends Ugandan HIV organisation over police raid

  • Halou

    Marie Harf, a spokeswoman for the Department said Mugisha was accused of “unethical research” and “recruiting homosexuals”.

    So that’s ‘multiple offenses’, and by the newly passed bill counts as aggravated homosexuality and warrants “life imprisonment” (see, the death penalty). The joke is that of all the people in the building at the time, the only one person to get arrested is the one who is involved in the ongoing lawsuit against the genocide consultant Scott Lively.
    Coincidence? Unlikely.

    This is one of the first official announcements of operations seeking to
    persecute gay people under a new law enacted earlier this year.

    I think that the new law is not in effect yet, even though it has been assented to. I believe that there are a few more hoops which it has to jump through to be able to be used in prosecutions. Not saying that this harassment did not take place, just wondering what charges were brought.
