Concluding Observations, E/C.12/MDA/CO/2,12 July 2011: Moldova
7. The Committee is concerned at opinions expressed by certain sectors in the society, including public anti-lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) statements by high-level politicians, triggered by the submission to parliament in February 2011 of the draft anti-discrimination bill.
The Committee recommends the adoption of the comprehensive anti-discrimination bill, taking into account the Committee’s general comment No. 20 on Non-Discrimination in Economic, Social and Cultural Rights. The Committee also urges the State party to take measures to eliminate discrimination against LGBT people. It also recommends including provisions in the draft anti-discrimination law on “reasonable accommodation” for persons with disabilities.
