STRASBOURG, May 15 (FENA) - "As we prepare to mark the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (17 May), I call on all member states of the Council of Europe to take firm action against hate speech targeting LGBTI people, which is dangerously spreading across Europe. Hateful and prejudiced statements, especially by officials and opinion-makers, are a major obstacle to achieving inclusion and equal human rights for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) people in Europe today, said today in a statement the Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights, Dunja Mijatović.
