EC obliges Hungary to amend the law on non-governmental organizations

The European Commission gave Hungary two months to bring the law on non-governmental organizations in line with EU norms, reports RIA Novosti, referring to the EC communique.

It is noted that otherwise, a decision may be made to return the case to court and impose financial sanctions.

In 2019, the European Commission judicially demanded to recognize the Hungarian law as discriminatory, which obliges NGOs that receive foreign funding to register and submit reports. Last summer, an EU court confirmed that the Hungarian law violated European law.

Earlier it was also reported that the European Court of Justice found Hungary guilty of violating EU rules on migrants.
