Finally, after Several Years, the Sodomy Law in Belize Was Repealed by the Supreme Court of Justice
Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Belize, Kenneth Benjamin, abolished the Section 53 of the Constitution that allowed for persons engaging in anal sex to be arrested and imprisoned for a maximum of 10 years. The abolition of this legal barrier will certainly benefit the sexually diverse populations and the whole country, as it opens up the way for actions to eradicate the HIV epidemic in Belize.
