Hate crime recorded by police
The European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI) recommended that Latvia strengthen training on hate crimes for police, judges and prosecutors. In its adopted reports for 2011, ECRI noted cases of violence against Roma and of damage to property and a monument in Latvia.
The UN Human Rights Council, in its Universal Periodic Review, encouraged Latvia to intensify its efforts to combat hate crime, noting improved criminal law provisions and training. It also recommended that Latvia consider legislative measures to recognize violence against people on the basis of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
