In Moldova high levels of prejudice and negative stereotyping towards ethnic and religious minorities, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people, the disabled and others, create an environment in which violence and abuse against these groups are committed with impunity. In this briefing Amnesty International shows that many people are prevented from claiming basic rights or deprived of redress for human rights violations. The briefing highlights its concerns with existing legislation, including the new Law on Ensuring Equality, which must be rectified if Moldova is to comply with its international obligations to prevent discrimination.
