The so-called child protection law in Hungary is met with strong criticism across Europe. A deletion is out of the question for Prime Minister Orban as a prerequisite for the Corona reconstruction fund.



The so-called child protection law in Hungary is met with strong criticism across Europe.

A deletion is out of the question for Prime Minister Orban as a prerequisite for the Corona reconstruction fund.

Budapest - Hungary does not want to accept any funds from the EU from the Corona reconstruction fund if Brussels makes this dependent on the abolition of the law restricting information on homosexual and transsexuality.

This was ordered by Hungary's right-wing national prime minister Viktor Orban in a regulation that appeared in the Hungarian Law Gazette late Friday evening.

The EU Commission has been examining legal steps against the law for weeks because it is directed against non-heterosexual people.

The EU Commission is delaying approval for the Hungarian Corona reconstruction plan "due to its political rejection of national legislation for the protection of children", according to Orban's regulation.

In this context, Hungary will only accept an agreement in which "the European Commission does not impose any condition on Hungary that does not apply to other Member States".

The Hungarian Child Protection Act has been criticized for forbidding children from accessing information about non-heterosexual lifestyles.

Orban is also planning a referendum on this.

The EU Commission has not yet approved the Hungarian plan for the use of corona funds - but this also applies to other EU countries.

However, the EU Commission has not yet made an explicit connection to the controversial Hungarian law.

Several national plans for the so-called development and resilience facility of the EU have already been approved, including the German one.

According to current calculations, around 7.2 billion euros are earmarked for Hungary.
