    Latvian authorities should investigate and prosecute those responsible for the attacks on peaceful lesbian and gay pride activists in Riga on July 22, Human Rights Watch said today in a letter to Latvian Prime Minister Aigars Kalvitis.

    On behalf of Human Rights Watch, I write to address the failure of Latvian police and authorities to protect the physical security, freedom of expression, and freedom of assembly of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community as it observed “Riga Pride 2006” on July 22. In the past, you have shown support for LGBT people’s equality and freedom to exercise their rights, and we call on you now to ensure that your government and all relevant Latvian authorities will undertake to investigate and prosecute those responsible for the attacks on peaceful lesbian and gay pride activists in Riga, and guarantee that all persons’ rights are protected and respected in the future, without discrimination.
