Javed Jaghai Withdraws from Constitutional Challenge to Anti-gay Laws

In a signed affidavit, Mr. Jaghai attributes his decision to withdraw from the case due to personal threats, the burden that the litigation was putting on his family, and continuing incidents of violence against Jamaica’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community. In his affidavit, Mr. Jaghai told the court: “Though the cause and the case are noble, I am no longer willing to gamble with my life or the lives of my parents and siblings.”  The full press release is available here: Javed Jaghai withdraws from Constitutional Challenge
