A judge in Uganda on Monday agreed to postpone the trial of a British man accused of “trafficking obscene materials.”

According to the AP, Bernard Randall's lawyer, Annette Bada, said that she needed extra time to mount a defense in requesting that the trial be postponed. A judge granted the request and set a new court date of December 4.

The charges stem from the publication of images of Randall having sex with another man.

Randall told the UK's The Independent that the photos landed in the hands of the tabloid newspaper that published them after his laptop was stolen. He called the charges “nonsensical.”

The retired 65-year-old former computer analyst from Faversham and his Ugandan partner, 30-year-old Albert Cheptoyek, were dragged from their home at 6:30 in the morning and kept in cells with 18 other criminals for 3 days before they were charged.

“I'm completely innocent,” Randall told reporters, “but I have no faith in the Ugandan judicial system.”

Randall said he feared he would be deported.

Uganda is notorious for its harsh anti-gay laws. In 2009, an Ugandan lawmaker introduced a bill that proposed the death penalty for people who engage in gay sex. The Anti-Homosexuality Bill, which has yet to become law, has attracted worldwide condemnation and protests.
