Tackling discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation and gender identity

Amendment No. 5 | Doc. 13223 | 26 June 2013

Committee on Equality and Non-Discrimination
2013 - Third part-session
In the draft resolution, after paragraph 5, insert the following paragraph:

"In this context, the Assembly takes note of the Opinion of the European Commission for Democracy through Law (Venice Commission) on the issue of the prohibition of so-called "propaganda of homosexuality" in the light of recent legislation in some member states of the Council of Europe; it shares its analysis and endorses its findings, notably that "the measures in question appear to be incompatible with the underlying values of the [European Convention on Human Rights]", in addition to their failure to meet the requirements for restrictions prescribed by Articles 10, 11 and 14 of the Convention."
