Hungarian Parliament to curtail freedom of information legislation
May 7, 2013

Some recent and rather sad news on freedom of information from Hungary. http://atlatszo.hu/2013/04/29/hungarian-parliament-to-curtai...

The Bill was submitted to the Parliament on Sunday (see the date on the document http://www.parlament.hu/irom39/10904/10904.pdf) and the Parliament after a very thorough consideration adopted it today in the morning.

The timing of the adoption of the Bill, that was rushed through the Parliament, perfectly shows Hungary’s commitment to principles of open government as the country officially joined the OGP last week.
