We are extremely concerned for the shameful verdict of the High Court of Cassation that states that in the text of the Dean of the Faculty of Law in Novi Sad, Prof. Dr. Branislav Ristivojević, was no hate speech or discrimination against women and members of the LGBT population.

Prof. Dr. Ristivojević stated in this text that “The Law on Prevention of Domestic Violence serves to protect women regardless of whether they are strong or weak, loved or unloved, nervous, whether they have a lover or not, whether they earn or are supported, whether they are they had some property or moved into their husband’s apartment, etc.”, and assessed that one of the factors influencing the increase in violence is police protection with ceremonial walks of homosexuals on city streets, which openly celebrate primitive, violent, low-lying, naked and vulgar sexuality”.

The lawsuit against Ristivojević was filed by the Commissioner for the protection of equality, Brankica Janković, because author blamed in this article, among other things, the Pride parade and the women for the violence against women. The High Court in Novi Sad, as the first instance, assessed that such a text represents discrimination, while the Court of Appeals took a completely different position, and the Supreme Court of Cassation confirmed the verdict of the Court of Appeals.

As stated in the final verdict, “the defendant is allowed to publicly state his value judgment on the subject, because it represents the freedom of expression that is necessary for the survival and development of a democratic society and which cannot constitute discrimination just because of sharp words used”.

Sramna presuda: Nije bilo govora mržnje prema LGBT populaciji

Izuzetno smo zabrinuti zbog sramotne presude Visokog kasacionog suda da u tekstu dekana Pravnog fakulteta u Novom Sadu prof. dr Branislava Ristivojevića nije bilo govora mržnje niti diskriminacije prema ženama i pripadnicima LGBT populacije.

Kako podseća N1, prof. dr Ristivojević je ovom tekstu naveo da “Zakon o sprečavanju nasilja u porodici služi za zaštitu žena bez obzira da li su jake ili slabe, voljene ili nevoljene, nervozne, da li imaju ljubavnika ili ne, da li zarađuju ili su izdržavane, da li su u brak unele neku imovinu ili su se uselile u mužev stan itd”, te ocenio i da je jedan od faktora koji utiču na porast nasilja “policijska zaštita svečanim šetnjama homoseksualaca na gradskim ulicama kojom prilikom se otvoreno slavi primitivna nasilnička, prizemna, ogoljena i prostačka seksualnost”.

Tužbu protiv njega podnela je poverenica za zaštitu ravnopravnosti Brankica Janković, jer je u autorskom tekstu za nasilje nad ženama krivio, između ostalog, paradu ponosa i same žene. Viši sud u Novom Sadu, kao prvostepeni, ocenio je da takav tekst predstavlja diskriminaciju, dok je Apelacioni sud zauzeo potpuno drugačiji stav, a Vrhovni kasacioni potvrdio presudu Apelacionog.
Kako se navodi u konačnoj presudi, prenosi Politika, “tuženi je smeo i mogao i javno da iznese svoj vrednosni sud o predmetnoj temi, jer to predstavlja slobodu izražavanja koja je neophodna za opstanak i razvoj demokratskog društva i koja ne može predstavljati diskriminaciju samo zbog oštro upotrebljenih reči”.
