Justice minister submits counter-appeal to EU court concerning child protection law

Justice Minister Judit Varga on Wednesday submitted a counter-appeal to the Court of Justice of the European Union within the EU's infringement procedure launched against Hungary over its child protection legislation.

“Hungary will keep its end up,” the minister said on Facebook.

The Hungarian government sticks to its position that “education is a national competency and parents should have the right to make decisions concerning the upbringing of their children,” the minister said.

“As we have done before, we will go clear on to the end when it comes to protecting our children,” she said.

Referring to recent cases, the minister said the child protection law was necessary, adding that “even further measures” would be needed.
