Romania Govt Proposes to Recognise Same-Sex Marriages Conducted in EU

The Romanian government has approved a draft law that states that certificates of marriage between people of the same sex concluded in a European Union state will be recognised as legal documents in Romania. The draft legislation – which comes five years after a ruling against the Romanian state by the Court of Justice of the European Union, CJEU, and after several other lawsuits – still needs to be approved by parliament. But Florina Presada, the director of ACCEPT, an association that campaigns for the rights of the LGBT community in Romania, told BIRN that the changes do not comply with the rulings of international and domestic courts. “At first glance, it seems like good news. Unfortunately, there is very little that the government can achieve through this bill,” Presada said.
