Open letter to the Government of Malawi: Civil society organizations call for the repeal of discriminatory laws and the dismissal of charges in Malawi same-sex case

“We, the undersigned organizations, write to express our deep concern at the imprisonment and prosecution of Steven Monjeza and Tiwonge Chimbalanga under provisions of Malawi’s penal code criminalizing private sexual behaviour. We further call on Malawian authorities to drop all charges against both men and repeal sections 153 and 156 of the penal law.”
