EU institutions look into Lithuania's controversial protection of minors law
Monday, February 23, 2015
Lithuania's controversial law aimed at protecting minors from public information deemed harmful to their development has once again appeared under the radar of European Union (EU) institutions. The law, which says that minors should not be exposed to information denigrating "family values", is said to discriminate against LGBT people.
As the Baltic countries and France are marking 25 years since the restoration of diplomatic relations, Foreign Minister Linas Linkevičius says that Lithuania is grateful to France for its significant help in reforming the country.
