NGO Open Letter on Hungary GAC 11 December 2018

On 11 December, the General Affairs Council will discuss the Article 7.1 TEU procedure on Hungary for the third time since the historic vote in the European Parliament on 12 September.

While the situation in Hungary continues to deteriorate, discussions in the Council have focused almost exclusively on the procedural aspects of Article 7.1 TEU. It is high time for member states’ governments to take a stance on the substantive situation of the rule of law and fundamental rights in Hungary.
