A Namibian court on Monday rejected a request by a Mexican-Namibian gay couple to return to the country with their two one-month-old daughters, born to a surrogate mother in South Africa.

Since the birth of the twins in mid-March in Durban (east), their fathers, Phillip Lühl, 38, from Namibia, and his Mexican partner Guillermo Delgado, 36, both architects living in the Namibian capital Windhoek, have been unable to take the twins home.

The Namibian authorities refuse to issue travel documents to the two newborns, demanding that the couple prove their biological parentage. By taking the case to the country’s courts, the two men, who accuse the Namibian government of “discrimination” because of their sexual orientation, hoped to obtain at least provisional travel documents.
