Hungary: Insufficient progress and lack of transparency hamper fight against corruption

Following a high level visit today in Budapest, the Council of Europe’s Group of States against Corruption (GRECO) calls on Hungary to make reports public and to implement fully its recommendations.

Carried out as part of GRECO’s on-going non-compliance procedure in respect of Hungary, the visit focused on the prevention of corruption with respect to members of parliament, judges and prosecutors.

Among others, the GRECO delegation met today with János Bóka, State Secretary for Cooperation in European and International Justice Affairs; Péter Polt, Prosecutor General of Hungary and Judit Fatalin, President of the National Judicial Council.

While GRECO today welcomes the additional information received and the renewed commitment of the Hungarian authorities to implement its recommendations, it regrets that almost four years after the adoption of its Fourth Round Evaluation Report, too few of GRECO’s recommendations have been implemented – and none of its adopted reports on Hungary’s compliance with its recommendations have been made public.
