In Hungary, a new one has been added to the ongoing debates between Budapest and Brussels for years, with the claims that the rule of law practices are lacking. The EU commission took concrete steps regarding the violations of law in Hungary and referred Hungary to the Hague Court of Justice in some matters, and initiated new violation proceedings in some cases.

In Hungary, a new one has been added to the ongoing debates between Budapest and Brussels for years, with the claims that the rule of law practices are lacking.

In April, when the European Union commission did not receive a satisfactory response to its allegations that there were doubts and corruption in the distribution of EU funds, legal proceedings were initiated against Hungary and the files were sent to Budapest.

Following this, the EU commission recently took concrete steps regarding the violations of law in Hungary and referred Hungary to the Hague Court of Justice on some issues, and initiated new violation proceedings on some issues.

The first issue Hungary must answer before the Hague Court of Justice is the “Protection of Children and Families” law, which was enacted last year and is one of the materials used in the government’s election campaign.
