Court 'has broken our balls' with same-sex ruling - Salvini

Northern League leader says bigger emergencies than gay rights

(ANSA) - Rome, July 21 - The European Court of Human Rights "has broken our balls" with its ruling on recognition for same-sex unions when there are greater emergencies facing Italy, Matteo Salvini said Tuesday.
    In a post on his Facebook page, the Northern League leader complained that the Strasbourg court said "not a word on immigration, on taxes, on pensions, on unemployment.
    "I think that these are emergencies for heterosexuals and homosexuals," added Salvini.
    The court ruled on the case brought by three gay couples, saying that Italy has not respected the rights of same-sex partners in a committed union.
