The European Parliament and the Ugandan LGBTI situation
 
Members of the European Parliament passed a resolution condemning the murder of David Kato and calling on Ugandan officials to a proper and impartial investigation. The resolution also calls on the Ugandan government to follow international law and protect its LGBT citizens. 
The European Parliament has also adopted an urgency resolution condemning the “Anti Homosexuality Bill” under consideration in the Ugandan Parliament since September 2009. The EP has condemned MP David Bahati's bill on several occasions prior to this.
