This is the third complaint of homophobic behavior it has received in two weeks

Another homophobic episode was made public yesterday by Accept-LGOATKI through a post on social media. According to the organization, this is the third complaint of homophobic behavior it has received in two weeks.

In particular, two young men in black robes started verbally abusing – with homophobic expressions – a person who was walking alone on the street at night and then threw flares at him. The victim in turn took out his cell phone and filmed them running away. He then called the police and reported the incident. But while he was talking to the police on the phone, a car appeared, from which four people got out and aggressively started chasing him. It is noted that the young man recognized the two as the people who attacked him earlier. The police, for their part, advised the young man by phone to go to a safe place, which he did. The police arrived at the place indicated by the young man after the incident ended and simply took him home.

The “impunity is shocking”

The alleged victim managed to photograph the number plates of the car with the four young men and will proceed with a written complaint to the police. “We believe that with such evidence the police will soon identify the perpetrators,” the organization says in its post. He adds that Accept congratulates this person for reacting with quick reflexes and exposing the “audacity of these bullies”. “The impunity is disheartening”, continues Accept, and urges any person who finds themselves in the same unpleasant position to be “ready with the mobile phone in hand, to take evidence and immediately resort to the police”.
