Statement on attack on Merlinka Film Festival

02.02.2014


The Delegation of the EU to BiH/EU Special Representative condemns in the strongest terms the violent attack yesterday on the LGBT film festival 'Merlinka'.

Such intolerance is unacceptable, and a violation of human rights. The EU stands against all forms of intolerance including homophobia, xenophobia and hate speech.

We expect the authorities to identify those responsible and bring them to justice swiftly.

The EU underlines its unequivocal support for the equality and human rights of the LGBT community in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
