Six youth given jail time under Tunisia’s anti-gay laws. Discredited tests used as evidence.
From Tunisia, kapitalis.com reports (in French):
In Tunisia, Kairouan is located about 150 kilometers (100 miles) south of Tunis. (Map courtesy of brittanica.com)
On Dec. 10, 2015, a court in Kairouan [Kirwan or al-Qayrawan] sentenced six youths from Rakkada [Raqqada] to the maximum 3 years imprisonment provided by the Penal Code’s Article 230 [Tunisia’s law against sodomy]; again, discredited anal tests were used as evidence.
The court also convicted one of the defendants of indecent assault because his computer allegedly contained some movies deemed immoral.
More seriously, a 5-year prohibition on returning home to Kairouan was imposed on the six, starting after the completion of their prison sentences.
