Parliamentary question - E-004497/2016(ASW)Parliamentary question

Answer given by Mr Avramopoulos on behalf of the Commission

The Commission has opened an infringement procedure in a form of a letter of formal notice against Hungary on 10 December 2015 on the non-compliance of Hungarian legislation, adopted as a response to the migration crisis, with the recast Asylum Procedures Directive (2013/32/EU) read in the light of Article 47 of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights on the right to an effective remedy and to a fair trial and the directive on the right to interpretation and translation in criminal proceedings (2010/64/EU).[1] Hungary replied to this letter of formal notice in January 2016. The Commission is analysing the reply. If Hungary fails to sufficiently address the issues at stake, the Commission may pursue the infringement procedure.
