SULAIMANI (ESTA) — the legal committee of Iraq’s Council of Representatives said there is a parliamentary movement to legislate a law prohibiting homosexuality in Iraq, INA reported on Friday.

A member of the committee, Representative Aref Al-Hamami, told the Iraqi News Agency (INA): “It was agreed within the parliament to collect signatures after returning to session to legislate a law prohibiting homosexuality in Iraq.”

He added that “legislation of such a law will be reinforced by legal provisions that prevent homosexuality and the perversions associated with it.”

Muslim Majority Iraq despises same-sex sexual activity between men and between women. In some cases, there are possible sentences but it is unclear what are they.
