On his own initiative, and after media information that an attack on a member of the LGBTI community was reported to the police eight days ago, the Protector of Citizens initiated a procedure to control the regularity and legality of the work of the Ministry of Interior.

In order to protect the person of different sexual orientation, the Protector of Citizens requested the Ministry of Interior to provide him within 15 days with all information related to this case, including information on measures taken to identify and prosecute the three attackers on the LGBTI person.

The Protector of Citizens learned from the media that on 26 October 2021, three unknown men first made homophobic statements and then physically attacked a member of the LGBTI community.
