A Civil Campaign to End Abuse of Government Powers
Transparency International Hungary Foundation, Hungary
ABOUT: Transparency International Hungary is determined to challenge the abuse of special powers afforded to the government with the excuse of containing the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead of saving lives and mitigating the economic impacts of the pandemic, the government further tightens its power grab and channels public money to oligarchs and cronies. This goes hand in hand with the restriction of fundamental rights, such as the freedom of information. TI-Hungary has successfully advocated for the revocation of such restrictions during the pandemic’s first wave. Now we are here to repeat our efforts to prevent further disruption of the rule of law and democratic backsliding.
