Hate crimes recorded by police

National developments

Parliament continued discussing the amendments to the Moldova Criminal Code's hate crime provisions, which ODIHR reviewed in 2016.

In April, ODIHR, together with the OSCE Mission, Prosecutor's Office, the Police and several civil society organizations, organized a one-day workshop on improving the police recording of hate crimes. The workshop resulted in 14 recommendations to the Moldovan authorities.
