Information on reports of discrimination against homosexuals in the 1995 SERPAJ annual report [URY25415.E]

For information on the above-mentioned subject please consult the attached excerpt from the 1994 SERPAJ report. You will also find a chapter on homosexuals in the 1992 SERPAJ annual report attached to Response to Information Request URY24631.E of 1 October 1996, available at your regional documentation centre. Please note that SERPAJ reports deal intermittently with the issue of homosexuality, which appears in the 1992 and 1994 reports but not in the 1993 and 1995 issues.
