Tim Otty QC, Tom de la Mare QC, Emily Neill and George Molyneaux have written an opinion for the Open Society Justice Initiative regarding the compatibility with EU law of emergency legislation introduced in Hungary in the context of the coronavirus pandemic. The opinion concludes that Act XII of 2020 on the containment of coronavirus, and certain Decrees issued thereunder, violate the foundational values of the EU (as set out in Article 2 of the Treaty on European Union) and various specific provisions of EU law and the Charter of Fundamental Rights.
