Compensation for Turkish Gay Referee

by our Editors in General , 25 februari 2016


The Turkish national football association has to pay a former referee EUR 7,300 for discharging him because of his orientation. The association denies that he was let go because he is gay, but that his "shortcomings" were at fault here.

The former referee, Halil Ibrahim Dincdag, sees the verdict as a victory in the fight for gay rights and against homophobia. Yet he appeals, as he finds the awarded amount too low. He had demanded nearly EUR 35,000 and also wants to continue his career as a referee.

In 2014, Dincdag received the Respect Award for his work in the fight against LGBT phobia and LGBT acceptance in sports from former Berlin mayor Klaus Wowereit.

Dincdag officiated in the Turkish first division. He was let go in 2009.
