6.6.2014, ibtimes.co.uk – Hungary Court Forbids Calling Jobbik ‘Far-Right’

Hungary’s ultra-nationalist Jobbik party cannot be described as “far-right” by broadcasters according to a controversial ruling by the country’s top court.

The supreme court stated that commercial TV channel ATV breached the law when it called Jobbik a “parliamentary far-right party” in 2012 because it expressed an opinion and not a well-known fact.

Jobbik said ATV violated the statutory ban on opinionated news commentary. The media regulatory bodies took side with Jobbik against the TV channel, who nonetheless won in a lower court.
