The Justice ministry’s draft bill on the legal recognition of gender identity is a “small, but absolutely necessary” step towards the elimination of racist prejudices, the Hellenic League for Human Rights (HLHR) said in a press release on Friday, while welcoming the move.

 

“The voting of this bill is not a reason for either celebrations or disappointment: it is but a small but absolutely necessary step towards the elimination of racist prejudices and the full integration of transsexuals into Greek society,” the NGO said.

HLHR expressed satisfaction for the bill saying that years of efforts brought today’s results.

“With this bill, a stable framework is presented, in line with the recommendations of the Council of Europe, for a legal recognition of the possibility of a gender redefinition of a person, which offers additional guarantees of dignity (mainly procedural secrecy) and legal certainty, on the basis of what is already accepted by the judiciary and has been implemented for years by the Greek courts,” it added.
