The Hungarian Helsinki Committee's information update provides an overview of the interim measures granted by the European Court of Human Rights or the United Nations Human Rights Committee in applications against Hungary between January and May 2017. The update includes a summary of all cases, including their implementation by the Hungarian authorities. The information update is available online here.
