The European Court of Justice (ECJ) has ruled that Hungary’s law on utility fees does not violate European Union regulations in prohibiting energy companies to transfer special taxes and transaction fees to private consumers, the innovation and technology ministry said. Meanwhile, the ruling said Hungary has to ensure legal remedy against its energy market regulations.
