The Hungarian Civil Liberties Union has commemorated last week's tragedy in Paris in two articles. In advocating for the universal inviolability of the freedom of speech and of the press, HCLU stands against the intensification of populist, anti-immigration voices, and has also made it clear that extremist statements and acts in response to the attacks only play into the hands of terrorists.

Hungary Classifies All Information Regarding Paks Nuclear Plant

The NGOs demand that President János Áder initiate a constitutional review of the law before the Constitutional Court. The NGOs are concerned because the new act severely limits access to public interest data by rendering all information concerning the Paks plant as classified data for the next 30 years.
