Commissioner for Fundamental Rights Speaks at UN CRPD Meeting
On 8 March 2022, Ombudsman Dr. Ákos Kozma delivered a talk at the 555th Meeting of the 26th Session of the Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities monitoring the international implementation of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).
As the Commissioner for Fundamental Rights underlined in his talk,
“As an ombudsman institution, we welcome the efforts made in the spirit of the CRPD over the recent years, and in each and every case, we publicize the findings of our inquiries in the form of reports in order to comply with the mentality conveyed by the CRPD.”
The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities – gradually elaborated in the course of nearly ten years – was adopted by the UN on 13 December 2006. Since Hungary was among the first states to adhere to it, the CRPD entered into force in our country as early as on 3 May 2008.
