Arrest of MSM in Senegal

Abdoulaye WadeOn December 22 2008, nine men were arrested in Senegal and charged with "committing acts against nature" and "establishing an illegal organization". On January 6 2009 they were convicted and sentenced to eight years in prison.

It is believed that the charges were laid against these individuals because they are men who have sex with men and active in HIV prevention and treatment organizations in the country.
