ARTICLE 19 supports call on Council of Europe to condemn adoption of homophobic law in Moldova
01 Aug 2013
ARTICLE 19 has joined letters calling on the Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights and Secretary General to respond immediately to legislative amendments in Moldova that make it an administrative offence to publicly distribute or propagate information about lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT) relationships.
The amendments clearly violate International and European standards on the rights to freedom of expression and assembly, and guarantees against discrimination. The Council of Europe must condemn these amendments, and Moldova must repeal the measures immediately.
