Homosexual acts are no longer legal, as of 2017. The new code states the punishment for anyone who has sexual intercourse with someone of the same sex is 15 to 20 years in jail and a fine of 50,000-500,000 Central African francs (£60-£600). The legislators claim that the measure is intended to “protect the family and to comply with Chadian society”.
