The Attorney General of Uganda has filed a Notice of Appeal in an attempt to reverse the Constitutional Court of Uganda’s judgment which voided the Anti Homosexuality Act.
Advocates, who won the case, and were awarded 50% of the costs and are now preparing to fight the appeal all the way to the Supreme Court in Uganda.
In any event parliamentarians have launched a petition, vowing to bring the Act back to the legislature, knowing they have the populace on their side. The case was won on a flawed procedure rather than on the human rights merits of whether the content of the law is in and of itself constitutional.
