"The European Parliament's civil liberties committee today adopted a report by Green MEP Rui Tavares (Portugal) on the situation of fundamental rights in Hungary. The committee approved over 40 recommendations to the Hungarian government and the European Commission that were in the draft report. The Greens/EFA group, in line with their initial position, supported an amendment calling for immediate activation of the process of Article 7 TEU. The final result, supported by the committee, was that the conference of presidents of the European Parliament shall decide on the activation of Article 7 if the recommendations are not satisfactorily implemented."
