EC steps up infringement of Hungary over laws

December 7th, 2017

The European Commission is stepping up infringement procedures against Hungary concerning three areas: EU migrant quotas, the transparency of foreign-funded NGOs and higher education. The EC said on Thursday that it will refer Hungary to the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) over the three related laws. It referred Hungary to the European court for failing to comply with a temporary emergency relocation scheme for refugees, stating that "Hungary has not taken any action at all since the relocation scheme started". A statement by the ruling Fidesz party said "Brussels has launched a volley of bullets at Hungary" and the EU "is now openly using legal procedures as instruments of political blackmail and pressure". Fidesz said the "attacks" were due to "Hungary obstructing the Soros plan". Fidesz has also called on the government to "do everything to protect the Hungarian people and their national interests".
