Civil Rights Defenders strongly condemns continuation of systemic discrimination of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender, LGBT, community in respect to the right to peaceful assembly and freedom of expression in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and demands from authorities and public institutions in the country to fully respect these rights. In mid-March, Sarajevo Open Centre, SOC, an LGBT organisation from Bosnia and Herzegovina, requested permission from the municipality to conduct public events to mark the International Transgender Day of Visibility, celebrated annually on 31 March , and to raise public awareness of the problems that transgender people face in the country. The events were planned to take place on a square that belongs partly to the municipality and partly to the local shopping center, BBI Center, and on Susan Sontag Square in front of the National Theatre in Sarajevo. The security assessments of these events were not conducted by the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Canton of Sarajevo, as prescribed by the law, and permission was never granted. In its statement, Sarajevo Open Centre elaborated how the discriminatory criteria was applied in assessing which group of citizens will be allowed to access public space that already belongs to all citizens. This is in direct collision with non-discrimination principle enshrined in Convention.
