On 9 May 2019, the Court of Debrecen ruled on the second instance in favor of NGOs representing the interests of all Roma inhabitants of the third largest Hungarian city in an actio popularis lawsuit.
Miskolc, the third largest city in Hungary has been openly against its Roma inhabitants for the past few years. Discriminative measures have been carried out and the municipality’s communication is hostile and stigmatizing.
Hungary’s National Police force has been accused of discrimination in targeting Roma citizens for trivial fines. NGOs have sent a letter to the police commissioner, who denies the allegations, asking for a working group to study the problem.
