VWEF v Minister for Immigration & Multicultural & Indigenous Affairs [2004]

1 The appellant is a national of Lithuania, who arrived in Australia on 29 June 2002. On the day that his visa was to expire he lodged an application for a protection visa.

2 The appellant claimed to be a member of a particular social group, homosexuals, and had a well-founded fear of persecution if he were to return to Lithuania. He claimed of social isolation and of being beaten on a few occasions on account of his sexual preference. He was reluctant to go to the police. He said that there would still be discrimination in Lithuania and that the decriminalisation of homosexuality and legislative provisions to protect homosexuals from discrimination and incitement of hatred would not change the attitude of the people. The government could not protect him.

3 The Refugee Review Tribunal (�the Tribunal�) noted the introduction of a criminal code in Lithuania in September 2000, which made it an offence to discriminate against a person because of their sexual orientation and an offence to deride or initiate discrimination or instigate hatred against a person because of their sexual orientation. Lithuania had also ratified the European Convention on Human Rights and most of the human rights treaties and international conventions on human rights, which had been incorporated as part of Lithuanian domestic law. Country information however suggested that there remained a degree of societal prejudice against sexual minorities in Lithuania.
