Joint NGO letter ahead of hearing of the Hungarian government under the Article 7(1) TEU procedure

Joint NGO letter to the GAC ministers ahead of their hearing of the Hungarian government under the Article 7(1) TEU procedure. The signing civil society organisations welcome the Czech government’s commitment to taking the Article 7 procedure forward by holding this hearing under its EU Presidency. Amid all the immense challenges confronting the European continent, upholding respect for human rights, democracy and the rule of law within the EU remains a priority.
