Tirana 23 June 2011
I appreciate the United Nations Human Rights Council Resolution to human rights violations based on sexual orientation and gender identity, approved on 17 June 2011
The resolution requests the High Commissioner for Human Rights the preparation of a study that aims:
- Identifying the legislation and discriminatory practices and acts of violence based on sexual orientation and gender identity
- The way as international acts can protect the community from the acts of violence
Albania has supported this Resolution.
The Commissioner for the Protection from Discrimination, due to the fulfillment of 12 Recommendations of the European Union, is part of the Albanian institutional group for the legislation review aiming the protection of the rights of LGBT community.
