At the sitting of the National Assembly held this Wednesday, Ombudsman Dr. Ákos Kozma reported on the activities of the Commissioner for Fundamental Rights and his Deputies in 2019. In his afterword, the Commissioner for Fundamental Rights emphasized the importance of cooperation before the National Assembly: “Honourable Parliament, let us work together as partners.
