Chad passes law to make gay sex illegal

Africa - BannerOn Dec 15, 2016 Gay Star News reported: Chad has passed a law to make gay sex illegal.
The parliament in the north-central African country has adopted a new penal code to make homosexuality, both male and female, a crime.
So unless it is blocked by the President Idriss Déby, something very unlikely, that will increase the number of countries that makes homosexuality a criminal act to 77.
A law to ban homosexuality was originally proposed in 2014, but this time as a felony. It would have been punishable with up to 10 to 15 years in prison.
Instead, it will now be categorized as a misdemeanor.
If found guilty of homosexuality, Chad will punish violators with fines and a suspended prison sentence.
It will be handled by a police court or at a correctional hearing, rather than a full trial, according to TchadInfos.
