Budapest – A delegation of the Venice Commission visited Hungary to discuss with the authorities and other stakeholders the draft law on transparency of organisations receiving foreign funding. The visit took place in the framework of the preparation of an opinion on this draft law.
It was the Parliamentary Assembly that requested the Venice Commission to assess the compatibility of the draft law with the Council of Europe standards (see PACE Resolution 2162(2017) of 27 April 2017).
The draft opinion was on the agenda of the June 2017 plenary session.
