Hungary will review media law, says Foreign Minister

Hungary will review its media law and find a solution that suits everybody, Foreign Minister János Mártonyi told journalists in Brussels on Wednesday. Martonyi spoke at a press conference after attending a hearing of the European Parliament’s committee for foreign affairs. Martonyi said the letter by Neelie Kroes, the European commissioner in charge of broadcast and digital media, sent to the Hungarian government contained "guidance". The government's response will disperse doubts over the media law, he added. Asked if the law would be changed, Martonyi said there would be "a review to seek an acceptable solution to everyone involve". Kroes expressed concern that some of the law's restrictive provisions were "too extensive".
