To: Bochra Belhaj Hmida, President of the Tunisian Committee on Individual Freedoms and Equality
It's a crime to be gay in Tunisia and LGBT people are often arrested for just existing. Because of this, they are often victims of harassment, discrimination, and violence.
There were at least 71 arrests under Tunisia’s anti-gay law in 2017.
Ms. Hamdia, we are calling on you to include repealing of Article 230 of the Tunisian Penal Code in the final report of the Committee on Individual Freedoms and Equality.
