ADL Welcomes Hungary's Actions to Penalize Hate Speech

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) welcomed the Hungarian government's approval of an amendment laying the groundwork to hold members of parliament accountable for hateful remarks.                        

The approval by Hungary's parliament came in the wake of anti-Semitic statements made by Marton Gyongyosi of the neo-Nazi Jobbik party, who stated on the floor of the parliament that "it is high time to assess how many MPs and government members are of Jewish origin and who present a national security risk to Hungary."
