Should Tunisia abolish its anti-sodomy law?

The Tunisian government signed the UN’s Human Rights Covenant to not discriminate anyone based on their sexual orientation. But the case of an alleged rape victim has people asking if they’re sticking to their word. The 22 year old reported he was sexually assaulted to the police and then he says he was abused by the police and forced into an invasive examination. So are Tunisian police abusing the country’s anti-sodomy law?
