Anti-gay rights groups file petition against same-sex marriage
Posted on 2018-02-14 08:25:13
Anti-gay rights groups have filed a second appeal against marriage equality
rights.

The appeal has been filed with the Taiwan High Administrative Court as the
groups seeks to have a constitutional interpretation instructing the
government to legalize same-sex marriage overturned.

The anti-gay rights groups are being led by the Alliance of Taiwan Religious
Groups for the Protection of the Family.

And alliance secretary-general Chang Shou-yi says the appeal argues there
were illegalities in the Council of Grand Justices' Constitutional
Interpretation No. 748 - which was issued last year.

Chang says the council should have rejected the application for an
interpretation on the same-sex marriage issue by gay rights advocate Qi
Jia-wei in August 2015, because it violated legal procedure and was
unconstitutional.

The Taiwan High Administrative Court rejected a similar appeal by the
anti-gay rights groups last month.
