RIGA, May 19. /ITAR-TASS/. Latvian human rights organization Non-Citizens Congress is going to challenge amendments criminalizing “public denial of the Soviet Union’s and Nazi Germany’s aggression against Latvia” in the Constitutional Court.
The organization would go to court if President Andris Berzins approves the amendments introducing criminal penalty for justification of the mentioned aggression, said the organization spokeswoman Jelena Bacinska.
“These amendments ban opinions about historic facts differing from the official line and neglect the freedom of speech, which contravenes democratic values of modern Europe. Neither do these amendments promote cohesion of the Latvian society,” she said.
The amendments adopted last week propose imprisonment up to five years as well as compulsory works and fines.
