On 29 January 2015 PACE adopted Resolution 2035 (2015) where it invited the Venice Commission to identify the provisions of the Hungarian media legislation which pose a danger to the right to freedom of expression and information through the media. In particular, the Venice Commission was invited to analyse provisions of Act CLXXXV of 2010 (on Media Services and Mass Media), Act CIV (on the Freedom of the Press and the Fundamental Rules of Media Content), and in the Hungarian tax laws on progressive tax on advertising revenue for media.

The draft opinion will be submitted at the June 2015 Plenary Session.
