Name:Violence and Discrimination Based on Real or Perceived Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity in Malawi
Description:

Malawi Cropped

2015, 55 pages

This human rights violation report focuses on the cases of discrimination, harassment, and marginalisation of LGBTIs in Malawi. Malawi is a country  which legal system still condones the criminalization of consensual same-sex sexual acts, and where the police and the justice system fails to prevent the hate crimes crimes from happening. This report confirms that most perpetrators of violent attacks against LGBTI persons often conduct such attacks in the knowledge that they would never be arrested or prosecuted. The report also confirms that many victims of violence do not report to relevant authorities for fear of arrest, exposure of their sexual orientation or gender identity or because of lack of trust in the authorities.
