GHANA: 'Human Rights' Commissioner Vows To Keep Homosexuality Illegal

The laughably titled Human Rights Commissioner of Ghana says she was misquoted and would never endorse the decriminalization of homosexuality.
"I did not advocate that homosexuality should be decriminalized. My view is that, it currently isn’t clear whether it is even criminal and that if the view of the society is that it should be then, there should be a debate about that. In my view I don’t think as a society we are ready to give homosexuals, lesbians the whole category of people any of those kind of rights."

Sex between men is illegal in Ghana. The law makes no mention of lesbians.
