[world politics news]

The Women’s Legal Center and the Triangle Project have called for the speedy passage and implementation of the Prevention and Combating of Hate Crimes and Hate Speech Bill, to combat crimes perpetrated against members of the LGBTQIA+ community.

The organizations, making a joint oral submission to the portfolio committee on justice and correctional services, believed that having a specific written law makes it clear that the country rejects hate and prejudice, and protects diversity and equality.
