Initiating Immediate Repeal of Failed Fidesz Law Stigmatizing NGOs

Initiating Immediate Repeal of Failed Fidesz Law Stigmatizing NGOs
The Court of Justice of the European Union has made it clear that the law created by Fidesz, which stigmatizes civil organizations, goes not only against European values ​​but also EU law.

The law of Fidesz, a legislation based on the Russian model against non-governmental organizations receiving foreign donations, has failed. Stigmatization of NGOs and government action to create an atmosphere hostile towards them must be abolished.
 
To this end, MSZP submitted a bill initiating the repeal of Act LXXVI of 2017, which allows for the listing of non-governmental organizations, as well as the deletion of databases created on the basis of the law and the repayment of fines imposed.
 
MSZP supports the creation of a strong civil society in which non-governmental organizations are not stigmatized by law on a political basis. We want a country where NGOs and their members and supporters are valued parts of society.
 
MSZP – Hungarian Socialist Party
