TOP COURT: LAW ON ADMINISTRATIVE COURTS IN LINE WITH CONSTITUTION

 

Hungary’s top court has rejected a submission requesting a review of the law on setting up independent administrative courts, establishing that the new legislation is in line with the country’s constitution. The decision comes after the government announced it is postponing the law’s implementation.

The opposition staged a protest in parliamentary chamber, barring the house speaker from accessing the speaker’s podium during the bill’s debate.
