ROME, SEPTEMBER 28 – Three Polish regions decided to cancel resolutions, voted in 2019 as part of a general tightening on the rights of homosexuals, which declared them free from the “LGBT ideology”. The BBC reports. Almost 100 regions in Poland approved similar measures two years ago, triggering the EU reaction that accused the country of violating the laws against discrimination. The European Commission then threatened to block up to € 126 million in funding for five major Polish regions if they did not lift the resolutions. Yesterday Podkarpackie, Lubelskie and Malopolskie canceled them following the example of another region, Swietokrzyskie, which did so last week. The reaction of the Minister of Justice, Zbigniew Ziobro, who called the move of the European Commission a “blackmail”, was harsh. Same-sex relationships are not legally recognized in Poland. In July, the EU opened an infringement procedure against Poland and Hungary for violating the rights of the LGBT community. (HANDLE).
