Hungarian victory – The responsible committee of the EP supports CEPOL to be seated in Budapest

Today the European Parliament’s committee on civil liberties, justice and home affairs (LIBE) adopted the Gál-Report with a massive majority with a result that CEPOL should be seated in Budapest. The today’s victory is of great relevance: the EP sends a strong message to the European Commission, which favoured The Hague on the one hand, and as a result the final trilogues can start to close the file within this legislature on the other.

"Again and again there was a serious worry and concern about what is going on, about the rule of law in Hungary in general, without having one concrete single case of fundamental rights infringement or freedom of expression infringement where you could say that the rule of law did not function, where the courts did not work properly or the Constitutional Court did not act.

 

On the contrary, the court rulings prove - and look at the case of Klubrádió which was mentioned during the last debate -, that the courts are ruling independently. This is also the case if you look at the rulings of the Constitutional Court. They can't be regarded as pro-government or non-independent rulings.  I don't understand why it is always questioned the rule of law if it is evidence - evidence that is showed today and is incorporated in all these working documents - that actually each institution is doing its work properly in Hungary. (...)

 

This is why I would like to ask you cooperate and try to find an adequate understanding of what is going on in Hungary and maybe more good will in approaching this whole process."
