Abstract
In a highly topical decision on ‘hate speech’ the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) found that the right to freedom of expression and information as guaranteed by Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) can be limited when it is necessary to protect the rights of homosexual persons to enjoy human rights equally to others, irrespective of their sexual orientation (see also Beizaras and Levickas v. Lithuania). It found that a criminal conviction in Iceland for hate speech against homosexuals, expressed via the Internet, had not violated Article 10 ECHR.
Keywords
