SDP MPs Sabina Glasovac and Peja Grbin expressed satisfaction Friday with a decision by the Constitutional Court, which concluded that the courts and the competent authorities are obliged to allow everyone on equal terms to participate in the ' public hosting service '.
Glasovac recalled that an application for an assessment of the constitutionality of the domestic law of the SDP, with the support of 33 lawmakers, lodged a year ago to avoid discrimination against persons living in a formal and informal life partnership. " This decision shows that it makes sense to warn of injustice and to fight for human rights and a dignified life for every citizen, "she said. She assessed that this was a great victory and a great day for human rights, as the Constitutional Court found that the state must allow all persons on equal terms to participate in the public hosting service. It is necessary to always warn of injustice and to fight for human rights and the dignified life of every citizen. This is a serious message to the government: do not play with the Constitution of the Republic of Croatia, do not play with human rights, because you are not above the constitution and laws, but you must respect and protect them. We call on the Center for Social Welfare to annul the solution it brought in the case of life partners Ivo Šegote and Mladen Kožić. Croatian SDP announces on Friday (May 7th). February 2020. " This is a good way for the state, but also a serious message to the government: ' Do not play with the Constitution of the Republic of Croatia, do not play with human rights, you are not above the Constitution and the law, but you must first respect and protect them, not that others must warn you and turn you on the right path ' " , said Messovac. Peđa Grbin argued that the Constitutional Court reached out for a good mechanism, namely, he interpreted the law and ordered all administrative and judicial bodies in Croatia in which way to implement the law in practice. In the present case, this means that every case, whether it comes from life partners, spouses or single men, must be treated in the same way and subjected to the same criteria. " This means that the couple, given their socio-economic or other situation, will be assessed whether or not it is the role of a foster parent, not whether it is a community, a marriage community or a third party. This is the fight against discrimination and measures that deliver on the principles of the Constitution that guarantee all citizens that they are equal before the law, "Grbin said. He called on the Centre for Social Care in Zagreb to annul the solution that was brought in the case of Ivo Šegote's life partners and Mladen Kožić because after such a decision of the Constitutional Court it is completely inappropriate to force the couple to run another court procedure in which it is completely clear what their rights are and what their legal position is. " If the social welfare centre does not do so within a reasonable time, no longer than a week, I urge Minister of Social Policy Vesna Bedeković to exercise his powers and to annul this solution by right of control. This will be democratic, in accordance with the Constitution of the Republic of Croatia and their duty arising from the decision of the Constitutional Court, "Grbin said. He assessed that this decision would have both far-reaching consequences and in other respects, which is when the Constitutional Court said that the arguments that gay couples in Croatia Not accepted cannot have any constitutional effect, which is extremely important for the legal order of Croatia and the future when it is argued that someone may be discriminated against because of who he loves or who he lives with.
