Hate crime recorded by police
ODIHR observes that Latvia has not reported information and statistics on hate crimes to ODIHR since 2016. In addition, ODIHR observes that Latvia would benefit from raising awareness among and building the capacity of criminal justice officials to address hate crimes.
ODIHR recalls that in Ministerial Council Decision 9/09, OSCE participating States have committed to periodically reporting to ODIHR reliable information and statistics on hate crimes. Participating States also committed to introducing or further developing professional training and capacity-building activities for law enforcement, prosecution and judicial officials dealing with hate crimes. ODIHR stands ready to support Latvia in meeting its relevant commitments through the provision of comprehensive resources and tailored assistance in the area of hate crime recording an data collection, as well as further resources and tailored capacity building assistance for police, prosecutors, and the judiciary.
