Kosovo LGBTI groups criticise civil partnership plans

Groups supporting LGBTI rights have labeled a special law allowing for the registration of same-sex civil partnerships in Kosovo that is set to be put before the Assembly as “discriminatory.” A letter signed by 49 civil society organizations, CSOs, states that such a law would deny members of the LGBTI community the same rights to marry and start a family as heterosexual couples on the basis of their sexual orientation. News of the potential new law was announced by Selim Selimi, Kosovo’s justice minister, on Tuesday at a press conference, which was arranged to announce the completion of an EU project to harmonize Kosovo’s Civil Code, family law and property rights with the EU acquis.
