Rights advocates decry Cook Islands' same sex relations ban

From , 5:01 am on 8 November 2019

LGBTQI advocates in the Cook Islands are decrying a move to maintain the criminalisation of sex between men. 

Proposed amendments before Parliament, if passed, would legalise male same sex relations.

But after two years of consultations, including from the country's influential churches, a select committee has recommended reinstating the clauses.
