Ugandan Parliament Begins Winter Break Without Vote on "Anti-Homosexuality" Bill

Will be back in January

|

As The Advocate reportedyesterday, Uganda's parliament adjourned for its winter break today, without voting on the controversial "Anti-Homosexuality Bill," which would call for the death penalty for some LGBT people, and life imprisonment of many others.

Jim Burroway atBoxTurtleBulletin noted an inaccuracy in an earlier Advocatereport that declared the bill could "die a procedural death" as early as today. In fact, Burroway notes, this adjournment is only a vacation — the same Parliament will resume its business likely in January 2013, and will serve until 2016.
