EC To Decide on Infringement Continuation
PRIVACY LAW—HUNGARY & EUMarch 7, 2012
Portfolio.hu reports on comments by EU Justice Commissioner Viviane Reding that the European Commission will decide Wednesday whether to continue infringement proceedings against Hungary over issues including the independence of its data protection authority. The commission sent formal notice to Hungary in January, and Hungary sent its response to the issues late last month. "The answers to the three infringement letters are much more vague," Reding said, noting, "on Wednesday, the commission is going to take a decision on what to do with the answers of the Hungarian government."
