A court in a city in northern Serbia set a legal precedent when it fined a man for discriminating against a work colleague because he was gay.
The defendant in the case, known only by the initials D K, of Novi Sad, was to pay 180,000 dinars (#1,322) to the plaintiff for causing mental suffering, violating his personal rights, reputation and honour, reports Balkan Insight.
He will also have to pay the Gay Straight Alliance (GSA), which represented the plaintiff, 99,000 dinars (#727) in court costs.
