Hate speech legislation

Background:

In 2002 an amendment to Sweden's Constitution was passed that criminalized hate speech when it victimizes any identified group, including sexual minorities.

Unlike the Canadian law, this amendment did not contain a provision exempting religious hate speech.

A Pentecostal pastor was charged and convicted under this provision of the constitution. He was subsequently cleared on appeal to the country's Supreme Court.

Topics included in this section:
