Written submission of the International Commission of Jurists and ILGA-Europe

This present case concerns the Government of Moldova’s denial of permission to GenderDoc-M, an NGO representing LGBT individuals, to hold a peaceful demonstration in front of the Parliament in May 2005.

In both domestic litigation and submissions to this Court, the Government alleged that the refusal was based on “public order” and “public morality.” The Court’s Questions to the Parties concerned Articles 11 and 14 of the Convention.
