Yaren: Nauru has up­dated its Crimes Act, de­crim­i­nal­is­ing ho­mo­sex­u­al­ity and abol­ish­ing sui­cide as an of­fence. The gov­ern­ment says Par­lia­ment passed the Act two weeks ago to re­place the Crim­i­nal Code of 1899 and to com­ply with in­ter­na­tional treaties and obli­ga­tions. The death penalty has been abol­ished. RNZI
