Court rules against Switzerland's planned deportation of gay Gambian

The European Court of Human Rights has ruled against Switzerland’s intended deportation of a homosexual Gambian man, saying Switzerland has not properly examined the risks to which the man would be exposed. 

In a decision handed down on Tuesday, the court unanimously decided that this would violate Article 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights, which bans inhuman and degrading treatment.
