EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen has announced a decisive approach to the controversial Hungarian law on restricting information about homosexuality and transsexuality. The law discriminates people due to their sexual orientation and violating fundamental values of the European Union, said by the Leyen on Wednesday in Brussels. "This Hungarian law is a shame."
According to the Commission's letter, the legal concerns should now be carried out in a letter to the Hungarian government. This should be done before the entry into force of the new rules, the politician said. If Hungary can not clear the concerns, the EU Commission is likely to initiate an official infringement procedure against the country after the entry into force of the law. This could then end with a judgment of the European Court of Justice.

Viktor Orban has allegations back
The law approved by the Hungarian Parliament last week, among other things, provides for a ban on books, films and other content carriers that are accessible to children and adolescents and in which sexuality is presented by the heterosexuals. In addition, advertising should be banned, in which homosexual or transsexuals appear as part of a normality. The law is considered a special concern of Prime Minister Viktor Orban, which critically accuse the stokers of prejudice against minorities.
Orban rejects the allegations. The Prime Minister denies that the law is directed against homosexuals and that sexual minorities are discriminated against in his country. The enlightenment of adolescent children belongs from his view into the parents' house. "We protect this task of the parents," Orban said on Wednesday of the German Press Agency. (dpa)
