More arrests in Cameroon – stay tuned and watch Colin’s blog http://www.76crimes.com for more.
Four lesbians have been arrested and jailed on homosexuality charges in Ebolowa in southern Cameroon, according to a radio report.
The LGBT rights group Camfaids (the Cameroonian Foundation for AIDS) is seeking further information so it can provide assistance, if appropriate.
Under Cameroonian law, prison sentences of up to five years are supposed to be imposed only for people convicted of specific homosexual activity, but it is often interpreted as justifying imprisonment for people who are suspected of being homosexual.
This blog will report further information as it becomes available.
