After being reported to police by unnamed individuals, Dopeman, a Hungarian rapper was summoned to the police station and questioned as a witness after coming out with a rap song which contained lines from the Hungarian National Anthem.

 

Gabriella Skoda, spokesperson of the Attorney General’s Office has previously told the press that „the district attorney has viewed the music video and based on its contents contended that a misdemeanor crime against a national symbol has been committed and the suspicion of crime has been ascertained, therefore an investigation was initiated”.
 
The suspect of a crime has the right to defense and has the right to remain silent. No one can be bound to incriminate himself, or to provide evidence against himself. Witnesses do not have these rights, except in a few cases, and are otherwise are bound to answer questions asked by investigators. 
 
The district attorney is fully aware of who committed the ’crime’, so it is clear that the only reason for questioning the rapper as a witness was to deprive him of his rights.  
 
At the police station, Dopeman, accompanied by Andrea Pelle, Head of the HCLU’s Legal Aid Service, refused to answer questions, stating that contrary to the district attorney’s opinion, he believes no crime was committed and he would like to live by his rights.
 
It is the HCLU’s distinct opinion that no crime was committed. In order to determine that a crime did take place, the offensive or degrading expression has to be in direct relation to the national symbol. There is no offensive or degrading expression aimed at the National Anthem, the word ’fuck’ is aimed at political parties, politicians or parking fines for example. It is clear that the unnamed accusers have trouble understanding the lyrics, however the HCLU does not believe this is the case with the district attorney’s office. In their case, the HCLU believes it was either real or imagined political expectations that led to the investigation and the attempted violation of the rapper’s rights, which indicates the state’s arrogance, which is far worse than having trouble understanding lyrics.
 
If someone were to make offensive or degrading comments aimed directly at a national symbol, it would still be questionable whether criminal prosecution serves to conserve the prestige of the state. State prestige – represented by national symbols – functions by deeds of the state, it is never derogated by critics, even if strong language is used. The HCLU believes that it is the prosecution of free speech and the state’s arrogance which degrades democracy as well as the Hungarian state’s prestige today.

Freedom of religion and equality are fundamental rights, enshrined in human rights laws and constitutions around the world. This report, Drawing the Line: Tackling Tensions Between Religious Freedom and Equality, examines three interrelated aspects of these rights: religious freedom and equality for LGBT individuals, religious freedom and reproductive rights, and religious freedom as expressed through attire, hair, or other forms of religious appearance.

Regarding the history of the case it is important to note that in April 2014 the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) declared invalid the Data Retention Directive that unified the time frame of the retention of selective data by Internet and telephone services and determined the accessibility of data by authorities in the member states. According to the decision, the directive had exceeded the limits of proportionality concerning the right to privacy and protection of personal data, as it failed to establish guarantees that counterweigh such limitations. Despite the annulment of the directive, the Hungarian act allowing data retention still remained in force. The Hungarian Civil Liberties Union (HCLU) started litigation against Telenor in order to force the Hungarian Constitutional Court (CC) to repeal the unlawful act.

On 23 October 2013 rapper László Pityinger, known as Dopeman, was a speaker at a political demonstration arranged by political group Szolidaritás. During the demonstration the audience symbolically toppled and cut off the head of a statue representing the prime minister of Hungary. The rapper kicked the detached head which resulted in a criminal investigation. Dopeman will be represented by the Hungarian Civil Liberties Union (HCLU) during the procedure.

The investigation is based on the suspicion that Dopeman committed the crime of public nuisance. The HCLU argues that expressing a political view that does not violate

Today the European Court of Human Rights concluded Hungary was in breach of the European Convention on Human Rights due to the premature termination of the Hungarian Supreme Court’s President’s mandate in early 2012. The judgment confirms concerns of the HHC, the HCLU and the Eötvös Károly Institute that Mr Baka’s dismissal violated the independence of the judiciary, and was a further step in weakening the rule of law in Hungary.

Mr Baka was a former judge at the European Court of Human Rights (1991-2008). In 2009, he was elected by the Parliament of Hungary as President of the Supreme Court
