strasbourg - Hungary systematically violates European values ​​and this should no longer remain unpunished. The EU must therefore activate the most serious legal procedure, the so-called Article 7. This could lead to the suspension of voting rights in the EU of Hungary.

That is what Hongarian reporter Judith Sargentini (GroenLinks) argued in the European Parliament in the presence of Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban. The parliament will vote on its appeal on Wednesday. This requires a two-thirds majority.

According to Sargentini, the Orban government curtailed the independent media and academic world. Independent judges are being replaced by 'friends' of the government. These are measures that affect the rule of law.
