The Commission for the Prevention and Protection against Discrimination believes that citizens who have paid to replace their valid documents with ones bearing the country’s new constitutional name have been treated unfairly and urges the institutions to take measures to ensure equal treatment of all citizens, the Commission said in a press release Wednesday.

The commission’s stance comes after yesterday’s decision by the Government to replace driver’s and traffic licenses with the old name of the state free of charge.

“The Commission for the Prevention and Protection against Discrimination believes that unequal treatment is being given to citizens who changed valid documents with the new name of the state and paid for them. In this case, it is not a discriminatory basis, there is unequal treatment, but not discrimination. Institutions should take measures to ensure equal treatment of all citizens in the procedures for changing valid documents with the new name of the state,” reads the commission’s press release.
