UK Government: We don’t know how many LGBT asylum seekers were deported last year

UK FlagUganda FlagJune 19, 2014 – As reported by Freenewpos.com – Baroness Susan Williams admits the government does not know how many Ugandan asylum claims were made on the basis of sexual orientation in 2013.

The Conservative peer and government whip was asked yesterday in the House of Lords by crossbench peer Lord Harries of Pentregarth for the number of LGBT asylum claims from Uganda.

A Ugandan law further criminalising same-sex sexual activity, allowing repeat offenders to be sentenced to 14 years in prison, was given presidential approval in February.
