The theme of the Human Rights Day this year is “Dignity, Freedom, and Justice for All”, reminding us that every human being is born free and equal in dignity and rights regardless of race, colour, religion, sex, language, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status.

Mauritius: LGBTQ people no longer criminalised

Mauritius: LGBTQ people no longer criminalised

04 August 2023 is a historic day for the human rights of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Queer (LGBTQ) people in Mauritius as we no longer need to live with the constant fear of being criminalised for being LGBTQ. In the cases of Ah-Seek v/s the State of Mauritius and Fokeerbux & Ors. v/s the State of Mauritius in the presence of the Director of Public Prosecutions and the Commissioner of Police, the Supreme Court of Mauritius declared “that section 250(1) of the Criminal Code is unconstitutional and violates section 16 of the Constitution in so far as it prohibits consensual acts of sodomy between male adults in private and should accordingly be read so as to exclude such consensual acts from the ambit of section 250(1).”
