Turkey must uphold its domestic and international commitments, and dismiss all charges against 19 human rights defenders, prosecuted for their participation in a peaceful Pride march at Middle East Technical University (METU) in Ankara in May 2019, says Europe’s largest LGBTI rights umbrella organisation, ILGA-Europe.

“Poland is violating the fundamental rights of EU citizens and blatantly disregarding EU treaties and standards,” says LGBTI organisation ILGA-Europe as a legal complaint is submitted to the European Commission

The European Commission and member states are duty bound to hold Poland accountable to EU Treaties.
