Paul Kasonkomona to Appeal to the Zambian Supreme Court

[GroundUp]Paul Kasonkomona, an HIV/Aids activist based in Zambia, appeared in the Lusaka Magistrate’s Court today (15 May) on charges of idle and disorderly behaviour. He was arrested last month after calling on the Zambian government to decriminalise homosexuality and to respect the human rights of gay people, prisoners, and sex workers. Kasonkomona’s case was postponed today after his defence attorneys, SBN Legal Practitioners, filed a constitutional appeal on two grounds.
