The National Centre of Public Health issued a comprehensive protocol at the beginning of the coronavirus outbreak in Hungary. We made an infographic with the most important details.
We can hear a lot about quarantine with regard to the new coronavirus outbreak (i.e. COVID-19). Whole municipalities have been already locked down by the authorities in China and Italy, but geographical quarantine is not the only epidemiological measure that can be taken by the State during an outbreak. In the present document we will review one by one how the State can limit your everyday life in case of a serious epidemiological situation.
Benevolent hackers, who uncover vulnerabilities in the IT systems of state-owned or multinational companies for the public good, without harmful intention or financial interest, calling attention to deficiencies potentially affecting the rights and interest of thousands, often still end up being prosecuted rather than thanked. In this guide, we would like to provide advice to ethical hackers on how to avoid being reported and prosecuted. We have provided legal representation in several criminal procedures against ethical hackers, and in our experience, you, as an ethical hacker, can do a great deal to convince the court as well as the public that you acted with good intentions. If you follow our advice, it will be easier for you at court.
The government is working hard to obscure the events and to confuse the public opinion following the banning of several editorial offices - including the staff of 24.hu, one of the most read online portals - from Orbán’s annual “Orbáninfo” last Thursday. While the fact alone that the Prime Minister is willing to expose himself -once a year - to journalists independent from the government is a rarity, it is decided entirely arbitrarily who may be given this opportunity and who will be denied entry.
According to the Court of Justice Advocate General’s opinion, the fact that under the Hungarian 2017 Lex NGO, civil society organisations receiving foreign donations are subject to restrictions violates the right to the protection of private life and the right to freedom of association, and infringes the principle of free movement of capital. This is not justified by the general interest objectives relied on by the government of Hungary. Based on the AG opinion published today, the Court of Justice of the European Union is likely to decide that the Lex NGO is in breach of the EU law.
