Slovak Lawmakers Rebuke Europe for Call to Improve LGBTQ Rights

 |

Slovak lawmakers condemned peers in the European Parliament who voiced deep concerns about discrimination against the country’s LGBTQ minority and urged the administration to improve their rights. Conservative lawmakers across Slovakia’s political spectrum approved a so-called counter-resolution on Tuesday, stating that the European Parliament overstepped its powers and interfered in sovereign affairs. The shooting of two people in a gay bar in the capital, Bratislava, last October spurred a question about the lack of human rights in this eastern European Union member state. Slovakia doesn’t recognize any form of civil partnership and the constitution defines marriage as a union between man and woman.
