Institute Alternative strongly condemns the attack on the activist of NGO LGBT Forum Progress in Podgorica and calls upon the state authorities to bring the culprits of this attack to justice and penalize them in accordance with the law.
The politics of impunity over attacks on LGBT persons, especially during and after the pride parades, contributes to the creation of atmosphere which encourages escalation of violence against members of LGBT community and its activists.
We call upon the state authorities, primarily the prosecution and the police, to contribute to prevention of violence and discrimination based on sexual orientation with effective prosecution of the perpetrators of these attacks.
We express solidarity with the activists of nongovernmental organisations protecting the rights of LGBT persons.
