Függessze fel az Emberi Jogok Európai Bírósága a Felhatalmazási Törvény végrehajtását!

European Court of Human RightsÁprilis elején három alkotmányjogi panaszt nyújtottunk be az Alkotmánybírósághoz a veszélyhelyzettel kapcsolatos kormányrendeletek és törvény ellen.

A veszélyhelyzettel kapcsolatos jogszabályok ugyanis súlyosan sértik az emberi jogokat.

Ezen jogszabályok alkalmazása helyrehozhatatlan károkat okoz nap mint nap. Az Alkotmánybírósági törvény azonban nem teszi lehetővé ideiglenes intézkedés elrendelését.

Ezért kérjük az  Emberi Jogok Európai Bíróságát, hogy függessze fel a jogszabályok végrehajtását addig, amíg az Alkotmánybíróság ítéletet hoz.

Kérelem az Emberi Jogok Európai Bíróságához

Átmeneti intézkedés iránti kérelem az Emberi Jogok Európai Bíróságához (2020.04.14.)

Az elmúlt hetekben több nemzetközi szervezet is felemelte a szavát a magyarországi helyzettel kapcsolatban.

  1. Európa Tanács főtitkára;
  2. az ENSZ Emberi Jogi Főbiztosa;
  3. az Európai Parlament LIBE bizottsága; és
  4. Az Európai Biztonsági és Együttműködési Szervezet; és
  5. Az Európai Bizottság.

Ránk csak az a feladat hárult, hogy ezeket a nyilatkozatokat összefogtuk és letettük az Alkotmánybíróság valamint az Emberi Jogok Európai Bíróságának az asztalára. A döntés nem a mi kezünkben van.

Press Release no. 30

Budapest, 14.04.2020 Download

The Hungarian consumer protection organisation PITEE is asking the European Court of Human Rights to suspend the application of the Hungarian state of emergency legislation, which transfers legislative power from the parliament to the government. This transfer violates domestic law and causes an imminent risk of irreversible harm to the right to free elections. Three constitutional complaints have been lodged against the state of emergency legislation at the Hungarian Constitutional Court, but the rules of the court do not allow interim measures such as stay orders. The European Court of Human Rights must therefore suspend the state of emergency legislation until the Constitutional Court delivers its decision.

On 30 March 2020 the Hungarian Parliament adopted Act no. 12/2020, which empowers the government to adopt legislation aimed at slowing down the spread of the coronavirus, protecting the health of the population and limiting the economic impact of the protective measures.

The government has argued that this authorisation is required to ensure that the executive remains able to act even if parliamentary sessions are suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Since Act no. 12/2020 has been in force, the government has used its legislative power to increase government spending by up to 20% of GDP. Under normal circumstances, an increase of this magnitude would not be possible without the consent of the parliament.

Parliament has nevertheless continued to meet, and so far, only one member of parliament has tested positive for COVID-19. Although all of the other members are healthy and able to fulfil their duties as elected representatives, Act no. 12/2020 prevents them from discussing any economic measures taken by the government. They are only allowed to debate motions that have no financial relevance (e.g., the law on identity cards, the law on public servants, the law on land ownership).

This situation shows clearly that the sole purpose of Act no. 12/2020 is to disable legislative control over government spending, thereby subverting the democratic separation of powers.

Article 3 of Protocol 1 of the European Convention on Human Rights protects the right to free elections, and this right ensures that each voter can elect a legislator who represents their interests in the legislative procedure. Parliament, therefore, has the role of finding a balance between the different interests of voters and enacting legislation that reflects this balance.

Consequently, the transfer of legislative power from the parliament to the government violates the right to free elections because it effectively severs the link between the voters and the legislators. The role of the government is to exercise executive powers and not to seek a balance between the different interests of the voters. Government legislation, therefore, reflects only the interests of the parliamentary majority while at the same time removing a significant part of the electorate from the democratic process.

In view of these arguments, the Hungarian Constitutional Court has no constitutional alternative but to declare Government Order no. 40/2020 and Act no. 12/2020 void. The main question that remains is how fast the court will react.

We are therefore asking the European Court of Human Rights to suspend the application of the Hungarian state of emergency legislation.

PITEE’s mission is to enforce consumer rights and bring about fundamental change in Hungarian legal culture by promoting and defending democracy, free competition, EU standards, transparency and the rule of law.

In the past several years we have been active in solving the Hungarian consumer debt crisis in line with the rule of law. Although many of our legal actions do not yield the desired results, we are optimistic that the future decision of the European Court of Justice in Case C-932/19 and the conclusion of the European Commission’s investigation EU-Pilot 8572/15 will bring significant financial relief for Hungarian consumer debtors.
