2012-01-03 10:33:19 | with audio | (0 Comments)
The Jamaica Forum for Lesbians All-Sexuals and Gays (JFLAG), says it is expecting the new Government to prioritise human rights issues.
In the December 20 leadership debate, PNP President, Portia Simpson Miller said her administration was committed to the protection of human rights.
Simpson Miller also said it was time for a review of the buggery law, saying she believed the issue should be put to a conscience vote in the parliament.
The executive director of J-FLAG, Dane Lewis, said the group expects the new government to stick to its commitments.
Some churches have rejected Simpson Miller’s suggestion for a review of the buggery law describing the proposal as the promotion of a homosexual agenda.
