Tunisian authorities are confiscating and searching the phones of men they suspect of being gay and pressuring them to take cruel, degrading, and harmful anal “tests” and to confess to homosexual activity.

Prosecutors use the information they collect to prosecute these men, under the country’s harsh sodomy laws. Police arrested two of the men after they went to the police to report being raped.

But Tunisian authorities have no business meddling in private sexual practices between consenting partners, humiliating them under the guise of enforcing discriminatory laws.
