Could President Dodon be held accountable for his statements at the World Congress of Families?

The 12th World Congress of the Family takes place on September 14-16, in Chisinau, under the patronage of President Igor Dodon.

Yesterday, President Igor Dodon delivered a speech in the onset of the World Congress of the Family, in which he said that “the organization of sexual minority festivals and other activities promoting anti-family and immoral principles must be firmly condemned and even outlawed.”

„I am convinced that such propaganda should not take place in our society,” was one of Dodon’s declarations.

Reminder: On Thursday, September 13, the Promo-LEX Association published a Manifesto for Respect, warning that the previous Congress editions have proven an aggressive speech against social groups.

Promo-LEX: “Promotes an anti-abortion and anti-divorce speech that diminishes from women’s independence to freedom of choice, opinion and personal life, as well as an anti-lgbt speech and anti-family relationship outside of marriage. The discourse that incites hatred and discrimination has become an increasingly dangerous tool of tension and division of society.”

Could President Dodon be held accountable for his statements at the World Congress of Families?

(1) establishes the prevention and combating of discrimination as well as ensuring the equality of all persons on the territory of the Republic of Moldova, regardless of race, color, nationality, ethnic origin, language, religion or beliefs, sex, age, disability, opinion, political affiliation or any other similar criterion.
