On 14 February, the Hungarian government has submitted to Parliament a package of amendments to five acts. These proposed legal changes, which are extreme and flagrant violations of European Union asylum law and European and international human rights standards and European values, warrant an immediate and definite response by the European Commission and other EU institutions.
The Hungarian Helsinki Committee's brief information update on the bill provides an overview of the most concerning changes. The information note can be downloaded here.
