After sending “I’m very much in love with you” to another man, a Cameroon court imprisoned Jean-Claude Roger Mbede for 3 years.
18 months into his term, Jean-Claude was released on a provisional basis after equal rights activists protested his poor treatment. But now, sadly, the court has ruled he is to go back to prison to finish out his term. Jean-Claude says,
I am not sure I can put up with the anti-gay attacks and harassment I underwent at the hands of fellow inmates and prison authorities on account of my perceived and unproven sexual orientation.
The justice system in this country is just so unfair.”
