ILGA-Europe and ERA joint statement on the Decision of the Constitutional Court of North Macedonia to repeal the Law on Prevention of and Protection against Discrimination

The repealing of this Law means that in practice, LGBTI people are not efficiently and effectively protected from discrimination.

ILGA-Europe welcomes judgement from the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) saying that a homophobic statement on an Italian radio show constituted discrimination in employment.

The CJEU held that statements made by a lawyer during a radio programme, saying he would never recruit a “homosexual” or wish to use the services of such persons, fall within the material scope of EU Directive 2000/78 (‘the anti-discrimination directive’).
