MEP Donskis challenges attacks on European Parliament’s queries on Lithuanian Parliament’s homophobic legislation

In a new essay, published in Lithuanian on 2 February , and in English on 7 February 2011, MEP Professor Leonidas Donskis takes to task Lithuanian commentators and politicians who have attacked the European Parliament for daring to criticize proposed new homophobic legislation making its way through the Lithuanian Parliament.
