(BBC) – Ugandan police harass and physically abuse gay people in custody, a report by a human rights group has said.
Chapter Four Uganda documented several cases of men suspected of being homosexual having intrusive physical examinations.
Homosexual acts are illegal in Uganda and there are plans to introduce new harsher legislation.
Uganda’s internal affairs minister said the allegations were not true but his office would look at the findings.
Aronda Nyakairima told the BBC that the Ugandan government did not discriminate against anyone.
