Protection of homosexuals in Romania

   Tue 16/01/2001

Is the Commission prepared, as a matter of urgency, to draw the attention of Romania's newly elected President Iliescu to the fact that Article 200 of the Penal Code (discrimination against homosexuals) is still in force?

Will the Commission make it clear to the Romanian President that the EU makes Romania's accession to the European Union conditional on the repeal of Article 200 of the Penal Code?

What projects is the EU funding in the candidate countries to counteract prejudice and discrimination against homosexuals?
