The Hungarian Helsinki Committee and the Office of Immigration and Nationality signed a Cooperation Agreement on 22 June 2009.
The newly signed agreement deals with issues related to practical cooperation between the two organisations.
Under the Agreement, the OIN regularly provides statistical data to the HHC on asylum, Dublin, statelessness and family reunification procedures, and ensures access for lawyers and attorneys working with the HHC to reception centres in order to provide free legal assistance to asylum seekers. The HHC shares its experience regarding the situation of asylum seekers in Hungary. The parties also cooperate in the fields of training, information exchange and conflict prevention.
