Ban sought for 2 far-right groups

September 26, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Serbia's public prosecutor has asked that two far-right groups be banned after their threats led to the cancellation of a gay pride parade in Belgrade, an official said.

Serbian authorities withdrew approval for gay activists to hold a rally last weekend in the capital after the extremist groups Obraz and Association 1398 threatened to attack the parade.

Serbia's Ministry of Human and Minority Rights asked prosecutors to seek the ban from the constitutional court after five foreigners were beaten, one severely, in central Belgrade last week.
