Constitutional Court filing by NGOs

Read our constitutional complaint in which we articulate that according to our position, the regulatory concept of the entire Act LXXVI of 2017 on the Transparency of Organisations Receiving Foreign Funds is contrary to the Fundamental Law and therefore we primarily request the nullification of the entire Act.

It is especially true in relation to the discriminatory nature of the Act, which is a violation of the Fundamental Law and may be remedied primarily by the nullification of the entire Act. At the same time, we also wish to note that if the Constitutional Court nullifies only the sections referred to in our secondary request, the provisions remaining in the Act would become meaningless.

We wish to present the following in support of our petition.
