Tweet The Caribbean Male Action Network (CariMAN) has said it will not support calls for the decriminalizing of the buggery laws. An advocacy group; Minority Rights (MiriDOM) announced its intention two weeks ago to write to the government requesting that the buggery laws be repealed. President of the CariMAN Dominica Chapter Thomas Holmes said at a press conference on Monday 3rd June that although it is not certain what MiriDOM is asking for, it will not support any move to decriminalize the buggery laws. “We respect them it is their lifestyle but we also maintain that we cannot condone nor promote the ideals, the mandate, or the work plan of any group especially if we are not sure what they are about what they are asking for”.“If we know of any group whatsoever, MiriDOM or any other group, have an agenda or they are involved in some activities that maybe contrary to the law of the land then we cannot promote that,” Mr Holmes said. He also stated that MiriDOM must respect the laws concerning buggery in Dominica.“In Dominica it is part of the law and the we cannot condone it, and we cannot ask for it to be removed, or we cannot say let them be who they want to be, that is the powers to be to do that so we cannot talk on behalf of MiriDOM we are not in the position to do so,” Mr Holmes said.Meanwhile, CariMAN has committed itself to also reject any form of violence against MiriDOM and its members.“We do not support discrimination in anyway but we will not support their ideals, mandate and what they are maybe asking for,” he said.
