The bill, known as the Same Gender Marriage Prohibition Bill, would also criminalize 'aiding or abetting' such unions with 10 years in prison. It would also leave open to prosecution tourists or humanitarian aid workers who are in a same-sex marriages or civil partnerships.The legislation also appears to make people who work in embassies but do so without diplomatic protections -- such as technical staff -vulnerable.
