Ombudsman Dr Ákos Kozma Attends Hungarian State Awards Ceremony

The Commissioner for Fundamental Rights attended the Kossuth and Széchenyi State Awards, as well as the Order of Merit of the Hungarian Republic awards ceremony at the Dome Hall of the House of the Hungarian Parliament on 20 August 2021. 

Due to the coronavirus situation, the Kossuth and Széchenyi State Awards were delivered, similarly to last year, on the day of the anniversary of the foundation of the Hungarian State, which is 20 August, and not on 15 March, i.e. on the anniversary of the 1848–49 Revolution and War of Independence.
