Men convicted of historical homosexual offences on the Isle of Man will be pardoned in June, the Justice and Home Affairs Minister has said.

Jane Poole-Wilson has confirmed her department intends to switch on the relevant section of the Sexual Offences and Obscene Publications Act 2021.

This year marks 30 years since homosexual acts were decriminalised.

Ms Poole-Wilson said the automatic pardons were important to address the hurt caused by previous laws. BBC reports.
