UN denounces Ugandan anti-homosexuality lawListen /
A new law in Uganda which imposes life sentences in prison for homosexuality has been condemned by the United Nations.
The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Navi Pillay, said the legislation would mean that lesbians, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people would face institutionalised discrimination.
She added that the law violated fundamental human rights.
Daniel Dickinson asked Charles Radcliffe, from the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) for more details about the law.
