STRASBOURG, France, July 31 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Today, the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg has ordered Britain to pay $50,000 in costs and damages to a homosexual man for convicting him under British law for having group sex. The man’s 1996 conviction was deemed “interference with the applicant’s right to respect for his private life” and seen as contravening the European Convention on Human Rights.
The man, identified by his initials, A.D.T., complained to the European Court after he was convicted of gross indecency for having sex with four other men during a party at his house. Police found a video of the party during a search of the man’s home.
