Constitutional Court rejects gay marriage

Constitutional Court rejects gay marriage

Colombian Constitutional Court declined to rule on a lawsuit that aimed at legalizing same-sex marriage in the country. The judiciary organ ruled against it alleging flaws and poor support in the request that was filed by two attorneys. Judge Mauricio Gonzalez, president of the Constitutional Court, said that “nothing is definitive. It’s possible to insist on civil marriage for same sex couples before the court, but with more detailed arguments”. Consequently, the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community (LGBT) accused the Court of discrimination, and announced further insistence on the matter. With this decision “the country will lose a unique opportunity to achieve a true concept of equality”, said Marcela Sánchez, Director at Colombia Diversa.
