The European court for civil rights issued a decree that obliges the Italian authorities to legally recognize unions between people of the same sex. In the country, considering the opinion of the European structures, violated the right to respect for family and private life.
The liberal attitude of European guidelines for the privacy of the population of the region sometimes turns the opposite problem, when the configuration in the act shall be made not at the request of the society, but the decision of those or other structures, sometimes even without considering public opinion. The pretext for scrutiny of the European court of human rights (ECHR) to Italy was the conversion of 3 homosexual couples.
The applicants considered that their rights are being violated because legally issue its own relationship to them does not allow the Italian legislation. The ECtHR considered the arguments of homosexual couples meaningful and agreed that they "have the same need for recognition and protection of their relationships as heterosexual couples".
In this regard, the Tribunal ordered Italy to legally recognize unions between people of the 1st floor, reports RIA Novosti. The precedent that today same-sex marriages were not legal in the country of recognition, violates the right to respect for family and private life. The ECHR said that a civil Union would be "more appropriate" method of recognition of gay relationships.
"Italy and other powers which have ratified the European Convention for the protection of civil rights and core freedoms, should honor their fundamental right to receive a form of recognition, which essentially equated to marriage," said the Tribunal. With all this, that statement applies to both hetero-and homosexual couples.
The decision of the Strasbourg court, however, is not classified final - Italian authorities may challenge him for 3 months after issuance. However political figures in Italy, probably to deny the legalization of gay marriage in one form or another do not intend to.
