A gay man has been freed from a Moroccan prison after Ribble Valley MP Nigel Evans’ support.

The openly gay MP lobbied Moroccan MP’s to free Ray Cole who was arrested last Thursday and given a four month sentence for ‘homosexual acts’. Speaking before the release Evan’s said: “Do they really want their country associated with such archaic laws? Do they really think it is wise to lock someone up for four months for something that is legal in so many countries around the world?”
