The Disability Directorate of the Office of the Commissioner for Fundamental Rights of Hungary commenced its activities in Debrecen. Since 1 January 2023, the Ombudsman has been performing the tasks of the independent mechanism of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), so beyond the activities that we have performed in this field to date, now we also help, protect and control the enforcement of the fundamental rights of persons with disabilities directly, as was stressed by Commissioner for Fundamental Rights of Hungary Dr. Ákos Kozma at the inauguration ceremony of the new office in Debrecen on 3 May 2023. The Disability Directorate moved to a new, larger, barrier-free building together with the Office’s Debrecen Field Office.
Commissioner for Fundamental Rights of Hungary Dr. Ákos Kozma and Deputy-Commissioner for Fundamental Rights, Ombudsman for Future Generations Dr. Gyula Bándi paid a visit to the Fertő-Hanság National Park on 25 April 2023.
On 24 April, we celebrate the day of Saint George, who is the patron saint of security services and police forces, which is the Day of the Police in Hungary. In his speech, Dr. Ákos Kozma praised the staff members of the police, who always perform their job with perseverance and professional commitment.
