European Parliament Calls on Countries to Protect Inheritance Rights for Gay Couples
The European Parliament has adopted a resolution calling on member states to ensure gay couples inheritance rights are respect around the EU.

The report adopted by the Parliament says individual countries who do not recognise legal partnerships between gay couples should not be able to deny a gay widow or widower the rights they have to their late spouse's estate under the law of their home country.

It said a state "should not be able to apply the public-policy exception in order to set aside the law of another State or to refuse to recognise, or, as the case may be, accept, or enforce a decision, an authentic instrument, or a court settlement from another Member State when doing so would be contrary to the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union, and in particular Article 21, which prohibits all forms of discrimination."
