EU recalls Tanzania ambassador amid call for gay arrests

5 November 2018

The European Union has recalled its ambassador to Tanzania, citing "the deterioration of the human rights and rule of law situation" in the East African country where one regional official last week called for the outing and arrests of homosexuals.

A statement emailed to The Associated Press on Monday said the EU will be conducting a broad review of its relations with Tanzania.

The statement does not cite specific issues, but there are fears of an impending crackdown against homosexuals after Dar es Salaam Commissioner Paul Makonda urged Tanzanians to spy on suspected gays and lesbians and to report their activities.
