#Ukraine Temporary protection card extended until 2025

Hungarian Government failed to explain undemocratic measures

Hungarian NGO’s send alternative answers to Viviane Reding, EU Fundamental Rights Commissioner

The Eötvös Károly Public Policy Institute, the Hungarian Helsinki Committee and the Hungarian Civil Liberties Union sent an alternative answer to Viviane Reding, EU Commissioner for fundamental rights, providing detailed answers on the questions previously posed by the Commissioner to the Hungarian government.

The NGOs hold that the Hungarian government failed to prove its commitment to democracy,  and the measures questioned by the EU – violating the independence of the judiciary and terminating the Data Protection Commissioner’s mandate – proved to be professionally unjustifiable.

The English language version of the letter is available  here.



The reply of the cabinet of Viviane Reding is available here. In the letter the head of Ms Reding’s cabinet stated that our summary “has been useful in the European Commission assessment of the Hungarian developments against the norms of the Union”.
