Aditus foundation walks out of LGBTI Council

In view of the on-going controversy relating to push backs of asylum seekers, aditus foundation has presented its resignation from the LGBTI Consultative Council, with immediate effect.

In a statement aditus said that since aditus foundation is a human rights organisation believing that all human rights are universal, and therefore the foundation is refusing to endorse this Government’s clear preference of some rights over others, of some groups of persons over others, particularly when motives seem to be exclusively based on increasing national political mileage.

“The Minister for Civil Liberties’ silence in the face of potential human rights violations of the worst kind further confirms the need to distance ourselves from the Council” Aditus said.
