A resident of the French dependency Martinique has been charged with incitement to murder following posts he made to his blog calling on all gay people to be killed “without exception” along with a number of gay media and government personalities.
The Advocate reports that the man surrendered to Fort-de-France police Friday and was held in custody for two days before being released on bail.
The investigation included the Atlanta Police force, as the man is alleged to have made his posts whilst visiting there.
If convicted he faces up to 5 years in jail and a $58,200 fine.
