Hungary’s Media Law Changes Disappoint, EU’s Kroes Tells Figyelo

June 7 (Bloomberg) -- Hungary’s changes to its media law failed to address concerns of the European Union and the Council of Europe, Neelie Kroes, the 27-nation bloc’s commissioner for digital affairs, told Figyelo.

Hungary’s amendments to the law addressed 11 of 66 recommendations of the Council of Europe, without guaranteeing the independence of the Media Authority or clarifying all ambiguities, Kroes said in an interview with the Budapest-based weekly newspaper.

The status of the media law remains “embarrassing” as the government failed to deliver on its promises, Kroes said, according to Figyelo.
