János Csák Hungarian Ambassador to the UK has published an article defending the Hungarian government in the still ongoing media law dispute
The piece published on the Wall Street Journal website admits that the government is partially to blame for the situation, namely Hungary being required by the European Commission to modify its regulatory system after exertive critique on the country for inhibiting freedom of speech. As the ambassador puts it, “I concede that my government could have done more to explain the new regulations and the reasons they were necessary”.
At the same time he expressed satisfaction that the Hungarian government is now in the process of changing the law, which will hopefully allow the public to focus on the actual and important issues of the country’s EU presidency agenda. (BBJ)
