“Turkey Still in The Dark-times” ☛☛Turkish Policeman Suspended For Just Being Gay


 Cops in many educated contries (like shown above in a European Capital) cops march with the rainbow and the people are grateful for their services. Are you discriminated for being muslim? Then you know what discrimination feels like and there is no reason to reject decent human beings for their sexuality, religion, skin color...particularly if its something that god has given them. Did god make a mistake??

 

 

A Turkish police officer in the eastern city of Van has been suspended from duty because he is gay, German broadcaster Deutsche Welle (DW) reported on Sunday.

It all started in late 2017, when 34-year-old Metin, who has served in the police for over 10 years, was imprisoned for eight days last year for sexual violence as a result of statements made by his partner while under interrogation.

Metin and his partner were drinking tea in the police canteen when his partner was taken away for questioning. The partner panicked and said that he was a police officer, which led to imprisonment for impersonating an officer and further questioning, according to DW.

"According to the interrogation transcript, he then told the officers that Metin had forced him to have sex with him, and that he wished to press charges. Metin was subsequently arrested for having perpetrated an act of ‘sexual violence’ against his partner," the website said.

Due to a lack of evidence, Metin was not indicted. He was put on leave, then re-assigned to the northern city of Zonguldak.

But in 2018, a disciplinary committee ruled to suspend him from duty, justifying that "a civil servant can be suspended if he or she is in an unnatural relationship with another person", defining a same-sex relationship as unnatural.

Turkey's LGBT community has long been subjected to state harassment and widespread discrimination. Turkish officials have described homosexuality as “a disease” and rejected proposals for legal protections for LBGT citizens. Homophobic comments from prominent government officials are rather frequent.

TV Personality in Egypt Get One Yr Hard labor for Interviewing Gay Man


BBC


Mohamed al-Ghiety

 An Egyptian TV presenter has been sentenced to one year of hard labour for interviewing a gay man last year.
A court in Giza also fined Mohamed al-Ghiety 3,000 Egyptian pounds ($167; £130) for "promoting homosexuality" on his privately owned LTC TV channel.
The gay man, whose identity was hidden, had talked about life as a sex worker.
Homosexuality is not explicitly criminalised in Egypt, however, the authorities have been increasingly cracking down on the LGBT community. 
They routinely arrest people suspected of engaging in consensual homosexual conduct on charges of "debauchery", immorality or blasphemy. 
The most recent case came about after lawyer Samir Sabry, who is well known in Egypt for taking celebrities to court, filed a lawsuit against Ghiety for his interview which took place in August 2018.
The TV host, who has voiced homophobic views on a number of occasions, spoke to a gay man who expressed regret over his sexuality and described life as a prostitute. The man's face had been blurred to conceal his identity.
Egypt's top media body, the Supreme Council for Media Regulation, immediately took the channel off air for two weeks, citing "professional violations". 
The prosecuting lawyer, Mr Sabry, accused the TV host of revealing there to be financial gains of "practising homosexuality", state-owned al-Ahram newspaper reports.
In addition to the jail term and fine, the misdemeanours court also ordered Ghiety to be put under surveillance for one year after serving his sentence, Mr Sabry said. 
The verdict could be appealed against and suspended if Ghiety paid bail of 1,000 Egyptian pounds, pending the appeal's outcome, he added. Egypt's media council banned homosexuals from appearing on any media outlet after a rainbow flag was raised at a concert in Cairo in 2017, in a rare public show of support for the LGBT community in the conservative, mainly Muslim country.
A crackdown was also launched on suspected homosexuals with dozens of people arrested, in a move decried by human rights groups.
The authorities rely on a 1961 prostitution law that criminalises "habitual debauchery" to charge people who they suspect of engaging in consensual homosexual conduct. 
Mr Sabry was also the lawyer who filed a case against Egyptian actress Rania Youssef on charges of "inciting debauchery" over a see-through outfit she wore at an awards ceremony last year. He later dropped the case after Ms Youssef apologised.
He has filed hundreds of similar cases in recent years.

Denmark Withholds Aid to Tanzania Because It's Anti Gay Stance and Latest Homophobic Comments







Denmark is withholding 65m krone (£7.5m; $9.8m) in aid to Tanzania after "unacceptable homophobic comments" from a senior politician, a minister says.
Development minister Ulla Tornaes did not name the official but said she was "very concerned" by the comments.
Last month, Paul Makonda, commissioner for the commercial capital Dar es Salaam, called on the public to report suspected gay men to the police.
He said he would set up a surveillance squad to track down gay people.
The government said at the time that Mr Makonda was expressing his personal opinion, not government policy.
Homosexual acts are illegal in Tanzania and punishable by up to 30 years in prison. Correspondents say statements against gay people have increased since President John Magufuli's election in 2015.
In 2017, the country's deputy health minister defended a threat to publish a list of gay people.
"I am very concerned about the negative development in Tanzania. Most recently the totally unacceptable homophobic statements from a commissioner," Ms Tornaes said on Twitter.
"I have therefore decided to withhold DKK 65m in the country. Respect for human rights is crucial for Denmark."
Denmark is Tanzania's second biggest aid donor.
Ms Tornaes has also postponed a planned trip to the east African country, Danish broadcaster DR reported.
The Tanzanian government has not yet commented.
Mr Makonda - a staunch ally of the president - said last month that he expected international criticism for his stance, but added: "I prefer to anger those countries than to anger God."
The government distanced itself from his views, saying that he "was only airing his personal opinion".
It said the government would "continue to respect and uphold all human rights as provided for in the country's constitution".
Earlier this month, ten men were arrested for allegedly conducting a same-sex marriage ceremony on the Tanzanian island of Zanzibar.
The move was condemned by human rights groups.
