Men convicted under historic gay sex offences in Northern Ireland look set to be pardoned.
Northern Irish Justice Minister Claire Sugden has announced a motion to posthumously pardon gay and bisexual men who were convicted under now-abolished anti-gay sex offences.
The motion will now go before the Assembly for approval, and brings the country in line with England and Wales, who last month announced plans for automatic pardons to those convicted of such offences who have since died.
If it passes, the law – which has been dubbed Turing’s Law after gay Second World War codebreaker Alan Turing – will also allow living gay and bisexual men with historic convictions to apply for pardons.
