Dec 06, 2007 Quickie Link: Botswana Gays Threaten Suit Against Govt
By vanrozenheim

(Botswana) - Attorney Duma Boko, has slapped the Attorney General, Athaliah Molokomme with a notice of intention to sue the department of civil and national registration following its decision not to register the society of Lesbians, Gays and Bisexuals (LEGABIBO). Through a letter two months ago, it was revealed that the registrar of societies dismissed an application seeking to register the organisation. The letter further revealed that the rejected application was made by the Botswana Network On Ethics, Law and HIV/AIDS (BONELA) on behalf of LEGABIBO and filed with the registrar of societies on September 27 last year. LEGABIBO stated that the organisation's objective is 'to integrate a legal, ethical and human rights dimension into the sexual, reproductive and health rights without discrimination'.
