Lithuanian authorities must investigate attacks against LGBTI people
Amnesty International is deeply concerned by the recent attacks against LGBTI people in Lithuania. In August, a series of arson attacks were directed at the premises of the Lithuanian Gay League (LGL) – the national LGBT rights organization - and the apartment of its Executive Director Vladimir Simonko in Vilnius. In September, the building where the openly gay film director Romas Zabarauskas lives, was targeted in two similar attacks. Amnesty International calls on the Lithuanian authorities to publicly condemn the attacks, and to thoroughly investigate the incidents.
