Lithuanian LGBT organization lodges Brussels appeal claiming freedom of speech restrictions

“Lithuania is violating the right to the freedom of speech and expression, enshrined in the EU treaty, the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights and the Audiovisual Media Services Directive,” the organization said, adding that the complaint was drafted in cooperation with ILGA-Europe.

Earlier his month, the LGBT rights organization turned to court, asking it to cancel a conclusion by the Office of the Inspector of Journalist Ethics that the social ad, aimed at raising LGBT-awareness, must be restricted due to detrimental effects on minors. The court refused to hear the complaint, stating that the conclusion was only of a recommendatory character.
