We were already writing about the case which was considered in the Court of Pervomaiski district of Minsk and was about the insult and vulgar language of homophobian nature. Recently this case has been finished .

Because of the fact that the defendant, the girl who called a guy “a fag”, didn't have any previous convictions, she was brought to the administrative account and was to pay a fine of 140.000 Belarusian rubles for “Insult”.

Up to the current moment all the court cases for insult, homophobian vulgar language were solved in the favour of victims.
