Madonna said “I am shocked and saddened by the decision made this week by the Malawian court, which sentenced two innocent men to prison,” said Madonna in a statement on the website of her charity Raising Malawi.

“As a matter of principle, I believe in equal rights for all people, no matter what their gender, race, colour, religion, or sexual orientation,” said Madonna, who is building a 15-million-dollar academy for girls in Malawi.
