Stating the Obvious – Rebutting the Hungarian Government’s response to the Reasoned Proposal in the Article 7 procedure against Hungary

Amnesty International Hungary, Hungarian Helsinki Committee, Mérték Media Monitor, Háttér Society, Hungarian Civil Liberties Union and Tansparency International Hungary elaborated a joint NGO reaction paper to rebut the Hungarian government’s response to the Reasoned Proposal in the Article 7 procedure against Hungary.

The document, prepared by Hungarian non-governmental organisations (NGOs), is a reaction paper to the Hungarian Government’s updated Information Note to the General Affairs Council of the European Union on the Resolution on Hungary adopted by the European Parliament on 12 September 2018, submitted in the framework of the procedure under Article 7 TEU against Hungary.

The reaction paper collates the most significant false or misleading statements of the Government’s Information Note and rebuttals by civil society organisations thereto, along with pointing out the most important instances when the Hungarian Government failed to react to the concerns included in the EP resolution. It also contains the most important new developments in the area of rule of law and human rights in Hungary since the adoption of the Reasoned Proposal.
