The Hungarian Constitutional Court refused on Friday the resort of the Government of the Viktor sovereigntist against a decision of the Superior Jurisdiction of the European Union (EU) on immigration. The Hungarian court argues its decision to "not be trained to answer the ruling of the Court of Justice of the European Union (TJUE), or to examine the primacy of European law."
The Government of Viktor Orban had asked the Constitutional Court to study a sentence of the December 2020, in which Hungary was condemned to have infringed EU law on asylum. In October, the Constitutional Court of Poland considered that some Parties of EU Community law were incompatible with the Polish Constitution.
Although the EU denounced the decision of the Polish Court, Orban signed a decree of supporting Poland, and asked for European institutions to respect the sovereignty of the 27 Member States of the Union. The Helsinki Federation for Human Rights reacted by celebrating the decision of the Hungarian Court on Friday.
"The Constitutional Court did not give the Government what I wanted, the situation is clear: the ruling of the Tjue should be applied and must end inhuman treatment to asylum plaintiffs," the organization reacted in a statement. The European Commissioner of Justice, Didier Reynders, had regretted, during a visit in November to Budapest, the government's resource, which he considered "unacceptable". The Commission thus launched a process "for non-respect" of the decision of the Tjue. Hungarian faces financial sanctions.Date Of Update: 10 December 2021, 08:34
