PARLIAMENT APPROVES CUSTODIAL SENTENCE OF 3-5 YEARS FOR PROMOTERS OF LGBTQ+ ACTIVITIES IN GHANA

Legislation imposing three-to-five-year jail penalties for those found guilty of endorsing, sponsoring, or facilitating LGBTQ+ activities has been approved by the Ghanaian Parliament.

Anyone found engaging in such acts faces a minimum term of six months to a maximum sentence of three years under the recently approved law.

The choice was made amid debates in parliament about a measure that would have amended human sexual rights and promoted Ghanaian family values.

Speaking on the matter during the clause-by-clause amendment proceedings, Member of Parliament for Ningo Prampram, Sam Nartey George, elucidated, “The confusion stemmed from the advocacy for the promotion of these activities, which many Ghanaians oppose. It is important to clarify that private matters remain private, but deliberate efforts to endorse, finance, or encourage such activities will be met with strict penalties.”
