162 LGBT Couples Condemn Greece For Discrimination

Written by 

Greece

 

 

In November 2013, the European Court of Human Rights condemned Greece for discrimination against same-sex couples. This week, 162 LGBT couples have appealed against the conservative Greek state for such discrimination which continue.

Indeed, since the condemnation of Greece by the European Court nothing has changed in the legislation to provide at least a recognition of same-sex unions.

According to the Greek ReporterGreek Reporter, the couples not only complained about the legislative gap, but also about the regression of the Greek state that continues to keep them outside the legal framework. More specifically they claimed that the Minister of Justice had originally stated the country would comply with the decision of the European Court but the next day he backed off  after pressure by members of the New Democracy and the Church of Greece.
